GV II

Corn mill. Mid 1830s with later alterations. Brick; Welsh slate roof. 3 storeys with basement. Stone coping with kneelers. Roof space lit by large round-headed 2-light window to each gable wall of the original building, otherwise elliptical-headed windows with small-paned iron glazing throughout (to both principal builds). Lower extensions flush with the wall of the original mill building contribute to an important group of industrial and canal structures. INTERIOR: entrance retains its original pentice supported by iron columns of circular section (now contained within later C20 entrance building). Similar columns support the floors to both original and principal extension, indicating a close date for both phases. Stairs with simple newels and rail. King post roofs. The mill originally projected over a branch of the Birmingham Canal and had its own internal wharf and loading gear; the arches (now blocked), marking the course of the canal branch, survive, together with some original landing gear. The mill was extended shortly after erection to accommodate a large grain bin which rises through all the floors and associated service rooms; the extension lies to the right under 3 separately gabled roofs. Although altered, this building is a good example of an early C19 corn mill integrated with the West Midlands canal system.
