Long Description:
This is partially hidden by trees and approached by an overgrown track.

Harpley tower mill was built in 1832 to replace the earlier postmill on the same site. The 6 storey tarred red brick tower stood adjacent to the mill house and a selection of outbuildings.
As late as 1889 the mill was still using common sails to power 3 pairs of stones.
The mill had an Ogee cap with a gallery, stage and fan. The sails revolved in a clockwise direction with the stones thus being driven anticlockwise.
