Full Description

A row of cottages east of the cornmill at Matlock Green was a malt kiln circa 1855-1875. (1) A paint mill is recorded on this site in 1848. A conveyance describes it as a row of two buildings, formerly a turning mill, afterwards twisting mills, then converted to a paint mill. The twisting mills were probably in use in conjunction with the flax mill which stood on the site of the corn mill. (2)
