This Grade 2* listed 3-storey stone tower mill, built in 1797, is one the few remaining 6-sailed mills in the country, and the only complete mill of its type in Derbyshire. The mill has an ogee cap with fantail, and two pairs of millstones. Last worked commercially in 1919. Restored to full working order. Flour milled when conditions permit.
