Coursed squared gritstone with tooled dressings to door and window openings. Tapering circular tower of 4 storeys. At ground level, there is an east-facing doorway; at first-floor level, 2 opposed doorways, facing north and south, all with massive diagonally tooled jambs and deep lintels. Each first-floor doorway formerly had a flight of stone steps. There are a number of rectangular window openings with plain heads and sills, formerly with small-paned metal windows, one of which survives. INTERIOR: machinery and fittings have all been removed, but the building retains 4 hearths which emerge at 2 vents at third-floor level. History: the mill was built by James and Matthew Beresford of Hazelhurst Farm, and was adapted to steam power, at which time an engine house and chimney (both now removed) were erected.
