SJ 9652-9152
(west side)
13/67 North mill to
- Cheddleton Flint Mill


Water mill for grinding flint. 1756-65, possibly by Brindley. Red
brick with sandstone quoins; tiled roof. 2-storey, single-window
west front with segmental-headed cast-iron casement to first floor
set over wide segmental-headed boarded door; lean-to to left; timber
and cast-iron undershot wheel to right-hand gable set in a mill race
taken off the River Churnet and shared with the South Mill (q.v.).
The mill forms part of a complex including furnaces and drying kilns
(q.v.), all set in a close and attractive group. Flint was fired,
ground in the mills and bake-dried to form 'slop', an admixture to
produce more durable and finely-textured tile and pottery used by the
nearby 5 towns in the C19.
