Description

Mid and later 19th century but probably incorporating earlier

core. Long rectangular 2-storey cornmill on sloping site

with long elevations E and W and with approach ramp at S

gable giving access to loft. Harl pointed rubble, tooled

rubble dressings. Overshot millwheel at E elevation served by

raised lade. Various doorways and windows in long W elevation

and small single storey lean-to extension. Tall octagonal

ridge kiln vent; slate roof.

INTERIOR: all machinery complete and in reasonable working

order; 2 sets of millstones, 1 pair dating from circa 1898.

Statement of Special Interest

A mill is indicated at East Grange in circa 1590 on map drawn

by Rev Timothy Pont; there may have been an even earlier one

serving the medieval Cistercian Abbey at Kinloss, East Grange

then being part of the abbey lands. The present building may

incorporate fabric of the mill known to have been standing

in 1746. East Grange mill ceased full-time working in 1975-6

due to the retirement of the miller but continues in partial

farm use for bruising cattle feed.

About Designations

Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see www.historicenvironment.scot. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
