The buildings are still in use and are therefore in very good condition but empty of the original machinery. The southern end of the main block of the complex is now the local shop and sub Post Office.

The mill itself was a three storey stone building about 45ft long by 34ft wide, with an 8ft wide wheelhouse on the northern end of the building.
The water from the leat was carried into the wheelhouse through a 15 inch pipe carried on a twelve foot high wall, with an arch to allow access to the garden.

There was also a drying kiln, now converted to a shed.
