South Marsh Mill is a grade II listed[1] tower mill at Arundel, Sussex, England which has been converted to residential use.

History[edit]

South Marsh Mill was built in 1830. It was working by wind until 1915, when the windshaft snapped, but was worked by engine until 1922. The machinery was removed c.1941.[2]

Description[edit]

South Marsh Mill is a five storey tower mill. She had four Patent sails carried on a cast iron windshaft. The cap was a beehive shape, winded by a fantail. The mill drove three pairs of millstones. The cap now carried is an octagonal shape, housing the broken windshaft. The fantail is missing.[2] Various extensions have been made to the tower.[1]
