It is believed that the original waterwheel, just slightly larger than this one, may be been in a "waterhouse" a separately enclosed structure within the mill. The door above the wheel speaks to this - it matched an Oliver Evan's design for a waterhouse. One advantage of a waterhouse is the ability to heat the enclosed area to prevent the freezing of the wheel.
