Water mill. Earliest three bays probably mid C18 but reusing some earlier timbers, extended by two bays to the west, one bay to the east and a further range to the north probably in the early C19 with a south wing of two by three bays mainly of late C19 date but with some early C19 brick footings, turbine inserted c1885 and some minor C20 alterations. Lower floor brick now painted. Above timberframed clad in weatherboarding with tiled roof. Northern part of two storeys and attics comprising turbine floor, stone floor and bin floor, southern part of two storeys but because of sloping site only one floor visible to east. Irregular fenestration, mainly casement windows, fixed, pivoting or opening. EXTERIOR: North front has taller gabled roof with later gabled pigeon loft to centre and lower northern gabled range. The weatherboarding is of early hardwood. Upper floor has three fixed six-pane casements of early C19 date, a further one to lower floor and an early C20 window with leaded lights. East elevation has large gable to right hand side with renewed door in original opening to bin floor, centre houses the turbine. Left side has two parallel ranges and two six-pane fixed casements and double door.

First floor has two early C20 casements with leaded lights. Ground floor has cambered headed window and door and wide opening to left. Southern part of west elevation has one C19 casement and one blank to upper floor and lower floor has two early C19 twelve-pane pivoting casements and one blank. Northern part of this front has early C19 chamfered casement and a similar window and an early C20 casement below. Because of later extensions the southernmost mid C18 front is now internal with painted brick ground floor in English bond with cambered entrance, old weatherboarded first floor with substantial timber frame and half-hipped tiled roof. The northern wall of the south wing is also internal.
