JACOBSTOWE SS 50 SE 7/160 The Old Mill - GV II House with attached mill building, C17, extended probably in C19 with mid-late C19 mill. Rendered cob walls incorporating some rubble, stone rubble walls to mill. Gable ended asbestos slate roof. 3 rendered brick stacks, 2 axial, one at left gable end. Plan: original plan unclear due to C20 alterations but likely to have begun as 3- room-and-through-passage plan. However, the position of the passage, and therefore the higher and lower ends is difficult to deduce and the house has probably been extended at the left-hand end and possibly reduced at the right end. The right-hand room is most probably the hall and is heated by an axial stack. The 2 outer stacks are most likely later insertions. At the right-hand end of the house is a lower, probably C19 addition, which originally had a non-domestic function. Beyond that is the mill building which consists of one long room underneath the centre of which are 2 water wheels served by a leat running in from the front and under the building, behind which the ground drops away to the river. Exterior: 2 storeys, mill building is single storey. Long asymmetrical 4-window front of late C20 P.V.C. casements to the mouse. 2 storey gabled projection to left of centre with C20 lower gabled porch built in front of it which has stable type door. C19 plank door towards right-nand end. Beyond it is the lower C19 addition. To its right is the mill building which is lower still. It has 3 original 4-light windows with overlapping panes and brick arches above. The doorway at its left-hand end has a similar arch above. Interior: the 2 right-hand rooms have chamfered and bar-stopped beams. The right- hand fireplace is partially filled in and has a chamfered and stopped wooden lintel and granite jambs. At the right end of this room is a partially re-sited C17 plank and muntin screen with chamfered and moulded edges to muntins which have hollow step stops . Re-used C17 chamfered doorframe at the rear of this room. The C17 roof also survives comprising straight principal rafters with threaded purlins and dovetail-halved collars. One truss appears blackened but its construction suggests that it has been re-assembled from disparate pieces of re-used timber. The mill retains its mill stones and machinery.
