Full Description

Alderwasley Mill stood on the Pendleton Brook, a tributary of the River Derwent. The mill does not appear on Burdett's map of the late 18th century, but is shown on the 1836 Ordnance Survey map. Millers are listed as Store in 1891 and Peacock in 1904. The miller's house still survives. (1) The OS map of 1922 shows that it was still in use at that time, and that it had a cross-valley dam with a roughly triangular pond on the south-western side of the mill. (2)
