G.V. II

Former mill and house, later brewery and later barytes crushing mill. Former house dated and inscribed over entrance ISM 1671 with mill of similar date, C18 extensions and 1860s and C20 alterations. Coursed mixed sandstone and limestone rubble. Graduated greenslate roofs. Tall square tapering brewery steam-engine chimney projects from roof of the former house. Central house of 2 storeys, 2 bays with square kiln (?) to left under pyramidal roof; earlier 2-storey, 4-bay mill to extreme left appears contemporary with house; high 2-storey, 4-bay malt house to right with single-storey double-span extension to front right. House has moulded alternate-block surround under dated and inscribed shaped lintel. 3-light chamfered stone-mullioned window and smaller fire window to right with similar 2-light window above and blocked fire window. Projecting kiln to left has side door and front C20 casement window with smaller opening above.

Malt house to right has louvred vent windows with 2 earlier blocked windows. Large C20 garage doors to left and similar opening to extreme right. Probably was originally a water-corn mill and became a brewery c1860. Had ceased production in World War I when the building was used for crushing and drying barytes for local mines. Illustrated, J.D. Marshall & M. Davies-Shiel, Lake District at Work, 1971, p32, but not a paper mill as they describe it. Derelict and unoccupied at time of survey and being converted into 4 houses, retaining original features.
