ST BURYAN LOWER ALSIA SW 32 NE 4/103 Alsia Mill .7.78 GV II

Mill. C17 on earlier site, remodelled in the C18, C19 and C20. Granite ashlar, granite rubble and granite dressings. Grouted scantle slate roof on small wash house or bakehouse extension, otherwise corrugated iron. Gable ends of mill heightened in the C20. Stump of dressed granite chimney over right-hand end of wash house. Plan: Rectangular plan mill which until the C20 had a C17 miller's house built at right angles in front of the middle. The mill is built into the bank on the left and there is a first floor loading doorway at the left-hand end. Surviving overshot wheel is in poor condition; complete machinery is in fairly good condition. Single- cell wash house adjoins set back at the right-hand end. Exterior: 2 storeys. Part of the front was the party wall with former miller's house; the upper part is C20. On the right is the C17 chamfered granite mill doorway and in front of its left-hand side is a chamfered jambstone of former-miller's house doorway. End walls and rear wall are of dressed granite or granite ashlar. Wheel has an iron hub but wooden spokes, rim segments and buckets. Interior: Some C17 first floor structure relating to the mill machinery including a chamfered beam and complete C19 mill machinery with iron gear wheels with wooden teeth to the larger wheels. The machinery drives 2 pairs of stones on the upper floor and is in working order. The stones have their original woooden casing and there is a wooden hopper over one of them. An old photograph showing the miller's house is in the possession of the owner. This mill with its complete machinery is one of the most interesting and is also one of the oldest in this part of Cornwall. Last worked in 1966.
