To north of central doorcase is large segment headed voussoired arch for northern mill race with single light recessed and chamfered window over and above again two, 2-light recessed and chamfered mullion windows with dripmoulds, West elevation has been considerably altered but retains the segment headed door to centre and 3-light recessed and chamfered mullion window above.

To north of central door a 2-light recessed and chamfered window, with similar above to north, below which is a similar single light opening. Beyond to north,wall rebuilt and C19 hoist for logs attached to the building. Interior has been much altered and floor has mostly collapsed,however the staggered purlin king post roof with side stru ts survives as does the northern timber frame internal partition. The southern waterwheel is a low breast-shot wheel approximately llft in diameter. It is constructed of a mixture of cast iron and wood, with cast iron hub, rim and shaft. This drove only a single pair of millstones and a sack hoist. The pit wheel is also wooden with iron gearing. The northern wheel is also a breast-shot wheel, it has cast iron rims with wooden floats between, and a cast iron hub. To the north side of the wheel is a cast iron bevel wheel. As this was converted sometime in Cl9 to a sawmill no stones survive to the north side.
