Grist mill, now flats. c1830; restored and converted 1992. Squared and coursed rubble with ashlar dressings, copings and stacks, gabled slate roofs; render and slate roofs to C20 ranges. Tudor Gothic Revival style. PLAN: large complex of mill buildings set at an angle into the River Chew, with the leat leading under at the south-east corner towards the weir sluice. EXTERIOR: long 3-storey; 9-window north range with 2 rear wings and 1992 ranges to south and west. Main range has 2-light chamfered mullions with dripstones and relieving arches to all floors, those to first floor larger; 3 loading doors with segmental heads, keystones and C20 glazing to ground-floor centre. Shallow-pitched gabled roofs; 2 end stacks with tall Tudor style shafts with caps. (C20 ranges with similar dripstoned openings and casement fenestration). 2-storey lean-to extension towards the weir sluice with an external waterwheel in a pit. INTERIOR: to centre of main range on ground-floor 2 waterwheels in situ. They are breast-shot, one being enclosed within the building. Edge runner stones for crushing logwood. HISTORICAL NOTE: it is possible that cotton was manufactured on the site in the 1780s. The mill was used latterly to process logwood which produced black dye. The building is graded as an industrial monument of considerable interest on account of its machinery and rarity value in the area.
