GV II

Mill building. Early C19. Coursed rubble limestone; ashlar chimney; diagonal asbestos slate roof. Four-storey; 3-storey block at south end forming L-plan. West side: 8-window 2-light chamfered mullioned casement fenestration, many retaining original leading. One upper floor level doorway formerly had high-level timber walkway leading to small mill building to west (q.v.). Some other alterations to right. East side: 8-window fenestration, all segmental arched with leaded timber casements. Parapet gabled ends, north with segmental arched doorway to each floor and hoist gantry above. Cut-down gable-end chimney. Lower block to south end had one corner cut-off and rebuilt upon construction of the adjacent Cheltenham and Great Western Union Railway in 1844. Interior not inspected. East wall of mill probably rebuilt c1840, this explaining the apparent difference in construction dates of the 2 main walls. Small mill building to west (q.v.) and canal bridge to north (q.v.). (N.M. Herbert, 'Stroud' in V.C.H. Glos xi, 1976, pp 99-145; and J. Tann, Gloucestershire Woollen Mills, 1967)
