1. A former windmill with a tower of two stages; 22 ft high, 14 ft in diameter, with walls 4 ft. thick at base but tapering upwards. Pebble dash cladding. Walls pierced by window openings now boarded. Much altered by conversion to a dwelling, probably during late C18; two-storey wing constructed at north end.
2. A windmill was built on the hill between 1617 and 1642, and a mill is shown in this position on a map of 1748. By 1842 the 'Old Mill' was a dwelling. The conical slate roof was added in the 1930s and the building was extensively renovated and otherwise modernised in the late twentieth century.
