Area D, previous rag store, almost complete
The original “mill” is c1800. This factory was originally powered by a water wheel.
Area E, previous boiler house, complete
A number of extensions were undertaken in the 19th and 20th centuries.
The main timber framed structure is the drying loft which eventually became 44m x 8.5m after two extensions to the original.
Due to the requirements of the Environment Agency, it was necessary for the main water course to be diverted around the water wheel which cannot normally turn as part of the development due to noise. A diversion of the mill race has been undertaken around the water wheel and the original over-flow is to remain as a standby.
The apartments have been constructed within the main building, together with new build houses on the same site.
