This tower mill was already in a ruined state in 1900, having lost its cap and sails. The mill was built of stone, and the lower part of the mill was an integral part of several buildings which were all joined together. The mill was tall, with at least four floors. There are no remains of the mill, but Mill Farm survives as a reminder of the location.
