Historical Connection

As late as the mid 1800’s, the mill was still only a single storey stone building with two external undershot waterwheels and sluices supported on a wooden frame. After this time, the building was variously enlarged and heightened, with a fine stone frontage, brick gables and the wheelhouse completely enclosing the mill leat, with further storage above. High Mill House was built on the back of the mill about 1856, clearly post-dating the arrival of the railway, due to it’s facing of white ‘railway brick’. There obviously wasn’t much space left to squeeze the house into as can be seen by its close proximity to the line. However, on the plus side, this does mean it can scarcely be surpassed as a viewing platform along the whole length of the line.
