Tall red brick building; three bays three storeys, with door between bays in one side wall one gable wall three storeys two bays with loading between first floor windows, the other has third storey windows only – there is a low gabled attachment, does this indicate this is original? Red brick, yellow brick arches. Date must be mid 19th century, a remarkable building to find in a rural Norfolk location, but (S1) gives a clue as to its use as a steam mill.
(S2) in file states interior gutted.
