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.

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.
