Full Description

Osberton Mill - now an outbuilding of Osberton Mill Farm. The centre core of the building (probably the original mill) is of stone but it has been extended at each end and heightened in brick. The roof is of slate. The building is used as a store and seems to be in sound condition. The mill was driven by a leat from the Ryton, but this has now been diverted. It was last used about 30 years ago. Waterwheel - iron paddles, wooden spokes, c 14ft diam, c 6ft wide - still in position. One pair of stones was in position as was some of the machinery. (31/08/1963). (1)

Named 'Osberton Mill'. (4)
