Talking to @downandbeyond the other day about this the other day so thought I would do a repost as its one of my favorite local explores & my first pics were quite frankly crap!

The original mill dates to 1700, with a later extension added on in 1840.

The mill is 3 storey + attic. The wheel is iron and wooden waterwheel aprox 14 feet diam and 12 feet wide & is still in place with water still flowing beneath,
The miller's house attached to the north-west was demolished in 1881.

Iv visited here countless times but a lot of these are from late last year when I had some particularly excellent light pouring in through the attic

Strangely in the rear lays a Bamford pump engine, which would be an easily restored enthusiasts piece

There is a lot of farm machinery laying in the end rooms, I heard from a local that there was originally plans to turn this into a museum which came to nothing.
