NORTON NORTON MILL LANE (north side) Mill building at Priory Mill II Water-powered corn mill. Early C19. Partly roughcast rubble, stone slate eaves courses to pantile roofs. Two storeys with loft, two windows to first floor; attached single-storey wheel-house over mill race to north; much of east and south sides obscured by C20 single-storey additions (not of special interest). South side has door flanked by casements (within later addition) and first-floor windows with flat brick arches. Brick end stack on left.

Rear: wheel-house has central doorway and pitched roof with stone-slate verges. Right return: ashlar arch beneath wheel-house has projecting keystone.

Interior: wheel-house retains a breast-shot, eight-spoke cast-iron wheel (in poor condition at time of resurvey). Main building has a sturdy wooden platform against left gable with gearing beneath and vertical shafts rising to positions for two sets of stones. Sack hoist with double trap doors to each floor. Millstones now set in paving outside.
