Site Description Former water-powered flour mill. Three storey red brick building under a hipped slated roof; beams in the roof construction are inscribed with the date 1802. Water was supplied by a weir on the Emral Brook and a leat some 1.3km long to the probably overshot (or possibly breastshot) wheel of the mill.
Mill building was converted to a dwelling in 1988, featuring some of the machinery and retaining the inherent qualities of the main elevations.
To the north west of the mill stands Halghton Mill house (nprn 35863).
