Slinter Mill

Slinter Mill

Watermill

The mill since it was first built about 1800 has been a lead slag mill, a wood turning mill, a saw mill and eventually a private house from about 1940. It is now Grade II listed and lies within the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site. The present mill has a working 16 foot diameter breastshot wheel and some remaining machinery from its last use as a sawmill.
