NORTH PETHERWIN SX 29 SE 4/70 Forda Mill


Mill and millhouse, now private house. Possibly C17 origins. Rendered and painted stone rubble and cob. Rag slate roof to mill on left with hipped end on left and gable end on right. Corrugated asbestos roof to millhouse on right with gable ends. Projecting end stack on right with set offs and cloam oven projection. It is possible that the ridge and the stack have been partly reduced in height. Plan: Millhouse on right of 2-room plan with entrance originally to left with large hall kitchen on front, heated by end stack and small unheated shallow service room to rear. Mill set slightly forward, attached on left hand end, with overshot wheel (now gone.) originally on left hand end wall. Exterior: 2 storeys. Mill set forward to left with 3-light casement to left and small window to right. The mill has been extended slightly to the left over the site of the water wheel and pit. To right the mill house has a regular 2-window front with a C20 window in probably the earlier entrance to left and 3-light casement with remains of slate string to right. Two 2-light casements on first floor. Entrance now in right hand side wall of mill. Interior: Fairly roughly cut floor joists to millhouse spanning front room and resting on remains of heavy stud partitions to rear, originally separating hall kitchen and service range. The fireplace has a timber C17 ovolo moulded lintel, the stops covered over; the jambs do not correspond with the stops, the fireplace being slightly narrower, suggesting that either the lintel has been re-used and re-set or the fireplace has been reduced in size. None of the mill machinery survives. Photograph dated 1939, in possession of owners, illustrates the mill with water wheel insitu.
