Corn mill, converted as sawmill. Late C18, with addition in late C19, probably at time of conversion to sawmill; few later alterations. Slatestone rubble, hipped slate roof with slurried slate roof over the addition. Plan: 2-storey mill, with waterwheel to rear. The conversion to sawmill made a lean-to addition to the left side, and a doorway at the right side for taking in the wood. Exterior: The front has a wide central entrance with timber lintel and relieving arch, C20 2-light casement with timber lintel to right. At loft level, a 2-light window opening with cambered stone head. Attached to left, lean-to of single storey with loft, with C20 door and wide window with timber lintel, first floor loading door and upper window opening. The right side has a central wide doorway with timber lintel, upper level has 2 unglazed single lights and upper loading door. The left side has open-fronted shed attached to the lean-to, with timber piers supporting the roof. Rear is rendered at lower level, with upper level 3-light casement with timber lintel and single light. Large cast iron overshot wheel with wooden launder to left and tailrace to right. The addition has two C19 windows with brick heads, one at ground floor and one at first floor, both with C20 glazing. Interior: The interior retains the complete machinery of the sawmill, with trestle with moving belt for taking in the wood, pit for vertical saw and wheels geared from the watershaft. for the saw. There are sack hoist pulley wheels geared off the same shaft at ground floor and loft level on the rear wall, remaining from the corn mill machinery. This is a most unusual survival.
