The mill has a platform, floors, some roof. Two important parts are missing. They is a vertical shaft and a ladder to the second floor (upper ladders are available). The millstones are preserved, though not in the place. Also, the preserved parts are wooden elements of the millstone system, i.e. hopper, vat, mealspout and so on.
