Description : Situated on a small island in the River Derwent, Howsham Mill is a Grade II listed Georgian watermill, attributed to John Carr of York and dating in its current incarnation from c1770. It is currently in a derelict state, and is deteriorating fast due to the onset of tree growth, vandalism and general neglect. In 1965, a Royal Commission for Historic Monuments inspector, James Williams, described the mill as “...a building of the maximum historical interest as a very early example of gothic Revival style...” and “...of great architectural interest as it is a very rare example of the gothic Revival style as applied to a functional building. (I cannot find reference to a similar example, eg watermill)...”

Archimedes screw installed adjacent to the weir in 2007 [Wikipedia].
