A four-storey rendered mill building with attached two-storey house. The foreground male figure in white clothing and cap suggests he is a miller. Three women and a child stand in front of the house. The mill formed part of the medieval Bishopton Mills complex (corn, flax and timber) lying south of Bishopton Bridge. A mill race from High Dam on the River Laver supplied water to power the machinery which then discharged into the River Skell. A disastrous fire in the Flax Mill in June 1915 destroyed much of the site. The corn mill survived but was said to have fallen into disuse in the 1920s as a result of technological change.
