Door flanked by windows also to first floor, the window to left enlarged mid C20. Projecting bay: part-blocked window in front bowed wall, ground floor; sash with glazing bars above; both have large flush sill and lintel. Projecting band and semicircular recess to pedimented gable. Mill house: (main range, far right) - C20 glazed door with tie-stone jambs, mid C20 frames in original stone surrounds to windows. Shaped kneelers and gable copings, end stacks. Interior: central section only examined: ground floor - stone blocks set in flooring with recesses for framework of missing machinery. Large timbers support first floor, some possibly reused. Wheel- house against rear wall has remains of overshot wheel, in derelict condition. First floor: trap doors and stairs in straight flights. Roof structure: double queen strut roof with notched carpenters marks, 3 trusses over central range, one over house. The 1851 and 1871 censuses record that the building was then a corn mill with Ralph and William Umpleby the millers. The brick building to rear was built probably when the building was used by Fernbeck Dairies, late C19 - mid C20. A barn next to the mill was converted to a dwelling mid C20.
