12/256 Madey Mill



Water mill. Medieval origins, current buildings C17, extended C19. Ham stone ashlar; plain clay tile roof between stepped coped gables with gabletted crown to south and ashlar chimney stack to north. Two-storeys with attic, 5 bays east elevation. Wheel at south end, bay 1, the leat feeding in at first floor level; then hollow-chamfer mullioned windows in reveals, with hoodmoulds; 2-light bays 1 and 2 and lower bay 3, 3-light to bay 4, and to bay 5 a 2-storey projection under lean-to roof, with 2-light mullioned windows in south return, above a plain chamfered doorway. South gable end has a 3-light mullioned window to match at each level. West elevation is the C19 extension in lean-to form under a Welsh slate roof, having 4 bays of 3-light small-pane casement windows, the lower with voussoired segmental arched heads, except bay 2, which has segmental-arched double doorways to each level, the upper in a small gable. Inside the overshot iron wheel by Sparrows of Martock, about 3 metres diameter, all buckets missing; all grinding machinery appears to survive at first floor level, although not in working order. Probably one of 2 Domesday mills - this mill known as Madey mill since C14; in 1592 was coupled with a horse mill; it passed to the Manor in 1637, and was probably rebuilt soon after; in C19 became one of several mills held by the Hopkins family. (VCH, Vol III, 1974).
