Monument record MDR8569 - Blackbrook Mill, Ashbourne Road, Belper
Type and Period (3)
- World Heritage Site Buffer Zone
The stone mill building known as Blackbrook Mill still stands on the south side of the Belper to Turnditch Road, with water close by, but no machinery remains. (1) The mill was present by 1835, as it is shown on Sanderson's map of that date, with a mill pond to the west of the mill building. (2) The mill was still working in 1880, as it is marked on the OS map as 'Flour Mill'. (3) The mill is not named as a mill on the 2nd ed. OS map of 1900, and the pond is marked as 'Old Mill Pond', suggesting it had gone out of use by the end of the 19th century. (4)
