Harnham Mill, N of St George. The miller's house is Early Victorian and tall, the mill Perp and low. Ground floor of stone and flint chequer. Windows and doorways straight-headed. Lozenge hood-mould stops. One doorway with blank tracery in the spandrels. To the N one-light window (blocked) and two cross-shaped slits, probably re-set.
The string of moulding running along the front and side above the doors and windows is c.1250. The upper brickwork is 1559. The building was converted in 1550 from ecclesiastical use to Wiltshire's first paper mill when the river was diverted under the building.
