North Leverton (Subscription) Mill
The four sailed mill built for a group of local farmers in 1813 "to grind corn not only for the members of the Company, but also for other farmers and industrious poor persons, at a fee decided upon by the directors". The surnames of the five founding farmers were Rogers, Ellis, Ashton, Bower and Olivant.

The fourth storey added in 1874 and the two pairs of Peak stones and pair of French burr stones could be wind powered or using an external engine.

Ownership passed to a limited company an finally to a charitable trust in 2008 when the building was on English Heritage's At Risk Register.

Now restored the mill is open on Saturdays throughout the year from 10-00am to 4-00pm and milling whenever the wind is blowing strong enough!
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
