1/152 Foxworthy Mill House and Mill - (formerly listed as Foxworthy Mill 23.8.65 and Cottage) GV II

House, formerly Mill House and Corn Mill. House late C17 or early C18 with later additions; mill rebuilt early C20. Stone rubble. Corrugated iron roof, formerly thatched. Stone chimneystack on each gable. The west stack is original with thatch weatherings and projecting stone-course forming a cap. The east stack, though it too has thatch weatherings, is later because it replaces a former hip, the timbers of which are still visible in the roof-space. House has a 2-room plan with gable fireplace in the larger west room; to north of fireplace is a rounded stair turret. Abutting the house on the west is the mill building, now in the form of a cross-wing but replacing a much more modest structure. 2 storeys, with added single-storey lean-to. South front has wooden casement windows; north front is largely taken up with the stair turret and lean-to. On west side of the mill is the iron breast-shot water wheel, 12 feet in diameter. Moulded on it is the date 1892 and the name of the maker, C J Reed of Chagford. Interior: larger room has chamfered upper-floor beam with run-out stops; most of the joists have been renewed, but a few vaguely chamfered original joists remain. Large fireplace has granite jambs and plain wood lintel; oven in the back. Stair now has wooden treads, but 2 granite steps are said to survive underneath. Roof has plain trusses with collars pegged to the face of the principals by one peg and one old nail at each end. Source: picture postcard of the mill, posted in 1907 but probably late C19. In possession of the owner.
