Old Mill and Water Wheel, Miller's Dale by Rod Johnson

Old Mill and Water Wheel, Miller's Dale

The old water mill in the village of Miller's Dale, Derbyshire, England. The mill was used for grinding meal for animal fodder, it was bought by the Devonshire estate in the 18th century and was worked by several generations of millers, before closing in the 1920's. The water wheel was made by Thomas Cavill, a Sheffield millwright, in 1860 and was constructed of cast iron and wood. It measures 13 feet in diameter and 6 feet wide. There has been a mill on this site since, at least 1086. The building is now owned by Severn Trent Water and the their information board is the source of this information.
