ST DOMINICK COTEHELE MILL
SX 46 NW
4/228 The Mill
Watermill with attached cider house on the Cotehele estate; formerly known as Morden
Mill. Probably C18, remodelled and extended in the C19 in 2 builds, with the addition
of the cider house and the secondary mill, which is now a house. Restored C20.
Slatestone rubble with stone dressings. Slate roofs with ridge tiles and gable ends.
Plan: The main mill building is in the centre, with the waterwheel at the rear, the
launder running along the rear from left to right; the cider house is to end left,
built against the bank with an upper entrance at road level. The secondary mill,
which formerly also had a waterwheel at the rear, is to left, now converted as living
Exterior: The cider house is to end left, of 3 stories and loft, a symmetrical 3-
window front with a straight joint to the main mill to right. Ground floor has
central plain door with 16-pane sash to right and left, all with stone heads with
hood moulds. First floor has two 12-pane lights with flat stone arches and hood
moulds; second floor has two 8-pane lights with flat stone arches and hood moulds.
The central mill is on a plinth, of 3 stories with loft, a symmetrical 3-window
front. Ground floor has central door, 12-pane light to right and left, all with flat
stone arches and hood moulds. First floor has central loading door with 12-pane light
to right and left, with flat stone arches and hood moulds. Second floor has two 8-
pane lights with cambered stone arches. At the right side at left level there is a
single light. The secondary mill to right is a lower 2-storey building, with 2-window
front. Ground floor has 2-light casement and door, both with cambered stone arches
and hood moulds. First floor has two C20 2-light casements. The left end is on the
roadside. There is a flight of stone steps against the retaining wall, with a doorway
at first floor and to the loft; the loft doorway has a porch carried over the steps,
giving access directly from the road. The right end of the secondary mill has a
central cellar door with single shuttered window to right and left. Ground floor has
2-light casement with cambered stone head and hood mould, blocked single light to
left; first floor has similar window, and narrow light at loft level. At the rear,
the main mill building has first floor casement and single light at the loft level;
there is a wooden launder carried on a rubble pier, driving an overshot wheel. The
rear of the secondary mill to left has two 2-light casements at ground and first
floor. The rear of the cider house has door and external stack; the building was
formerly partly used as a bakehouse. 2-light casement at first floor and loft level.
Interior: The mill retains a complete set of machinery driving 2 sets of stones, one
Buhrstone, in wooden housing. Sack pulley wheel geared from the main drive. The pit
wheel and other wheels are wooden with wooden cogs; now subsidiary gear to right side
and one to front for the 2 pairs of stones, an unusual arrangement. The front gearing
is cast iron, probably a C19 later replacement. There is also a belt drive bringing
the floor down to a wooden chute where the sacks were filled.

Images of England
Images of England was a photographic record of every listed building in England, created as a snap shot of listed buildings at the turn of the millennium. These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
