Pointed arch windows blocked in red brick. Doorway on north side with depressed 2-centred arch. Blocked doorway on south east side. Superstructure has been dismantled. Externally many of the brick faces have been eroded exposing the perforations. Interior: Machinery taken out. Champered soft wood post and beams with run-out stops. Half of first floor and all of second floor removed, except for the beams. Narrow blocked segmental arch doorway on south east side. Note: Said to be the only known smock-mill in Leicestershire and Rutland. A windmill on this site is depicted on 1806 map.
