The Nether or Lower Mill was a water-powered corn mill with a dam shown on a plan of 1710, standing at what became the eastern end of Mill Lane. In 1813 a steam engine flour mill was described as having been installed in Dronfield within the previous few years, probably as an auxiliary to the water wheel. In 1845 besides the corn mill, kiln, brewhouse and mill goit there was an engine house and machinery. Other buildings included a brazier’s shop and a ‘manufactory’. (1)
