Interior: floors largely gone but retains heavy floor beams and joists. Massive main shaft, wallower, brake wheel and other equipment. Mill stone (not in situ) on ground floor. The mill, which stands towards the south end of the Hawk Lake, was used to extract linseed oil to make cake for feeding cattle and to crush bones for manure. Formerly brightly painted, it combined with Neptune's Whim, a now demolished Dutch-style cottage, to create a picturesque impression. C.L. (June 10, 1958) p.72.
