Stone rubble, the former mill house painted. Slated roof to mill house; mill, which has been reduced in height, has flat roof. Rendered chimneystack on right-hand gable of house and larger rendered stack on ridge, off-centre to left.
Double-depth plan with central passage leading to dog-leg staircase at rear. House is 2-storied; remnant of mill and addition to right single-storied. House has symmetrical 3-window front; all windows 6-paned sashes. Centre doorway round arched with plain fanlight. Heavily moulded 6-panel door has good cast-iron knocker in the form of a clenched fist holding a bar, from which hangs a wreath. Cement band between the storeys. Former mill to left has been converted to 20th century wing of house with datestone, 1674 TS, re-set on window embrasure inside.
At rear, to left, the brick-lined end of the leat survives, with an iron sluice-gate. Mill wheel is believed to have been removed soon after 1900. Interior of the house, only partly inspected, has been considerably altered; wooden staircase, with thin, square section balusters remains.
