- Cheddleton flint


Water mill; built as a corn mill and subsequently used for grinding
flint. Earlier core to early and mid-C19 superstructure. Sandstone
ashlar to lower parts (core); red brick above; tiled roof. 2-storey
and attic gabled front to south side. Circular opening to apex over
C19 casement window (left) and boarded door (right) on first floor
served by an open flight of steps, wide mill door set to left of
ground floor with brick relieving arch over. The undershot timber
and cast iron wheel is set on the north-facing gable in a mill race
taken off the River Churnet, and shared with the North Mill (q.v.).
The grinding of flint to produce 'slop' was an important admixture to
Tile-making in The Potteries during the C19. The mill forms part of
a complex including furnaces and drying kilns (q.v.), all set in a
close and attractive group.
