Phase one of the project would involve works at the Kiln House to develop four bedrooms and nine parking spaces.

Phase two works would see a linked bridge being built on the first floor to connect the two structures as well as the reinstatement of the mill wheel and gearing.

It's also proposed to develop a museum or coffee shop and six bedrooms on the upper floors.
