SW 73 NW STITHIANS KENNAL VALE

2/263 Lower Kennal Vale Mill (formerly listed as Lower Kennal 17.1.80 Vale Mill and Stonebuilt Mill leet course)

GV II

Water mill for grinding grain. Circa mid C19. Granite rubble with granite dressings. Scantle slate roof (partly replaced with corrugated asbestos) hipped at the front end, gable ends at the rear. Louvered ventilator over the ridge. Plan: Rectangular former grist mill with wheel-pit for former overshot wheel on the right-hand side. Later C19 extensions on the left-hand side. Hub of waterwheel and internal machinery intact. There is a large internal cast-iron gear wheel with wooden zaps; this wheel drives a smaller cog at either end from which there are drive shafts across the mill building (within an inaccessible basement) to drive a pair of stones and other machinery near the front of the mill and to drive other machinery including a grain cleaner behind. The original machinery is in situ but has been added to in the later C19 and C20. Exterior: 2 storeys. Simple unaltered elevations. Front has wide first floor window opening. There are doorways into the left-hand side and a blocked doorway into the rear: gable end of the rear left-hand extension. Original rear: gable end has a ground floor window and loading doorways to the first floor and the attic. Interior: Floors, roof structure and fittings survive. The floors are on several levels. Part of the ground floor is a basement to house the axial drive shafts (see plan). The attic floor is high up in the roof space. There is a very complex arrangement of ductings, hoppers and both gear and belt driven machinery. Roof structure has lapped dovetailed struts.
