6.40m x 9.60m (21' x 31' 6") This former water mill provides the original stone walls topped off with a breeze block ring beam. Some of the beams are in situ and some breeze block internal walls have been built. The current owners have removed the roof in order to renovate the property, however their plans have now changed.

Storage Shed

The property is located on the banks of a river, with the mill building being separated from the river by a lawn area. The old mill stream no longer runs alongside the mill, however it is clear as to the path it once took. The edge of the property follows the bend of a small country lane, and the boundary close to the mill building is set with an original stone wall. Further up the bank, with easy access to the lane is a flat piece of land with the outbuilding and parking. The remaining garden is mainly aid to lawn with an orchard, and both of these areas are fairly flat. The storage shed is situated at the end of the orchard.
