Full Description

A corn mill on the Coppice Brook above Belper, was being worked by John Williams in 1829. It was inherited by his grandson in 1838. It is not clear when this mill was closed. The mill building, a three storey stone structure, has been converted into a house. The dam wall behind it survives, but the mill pool itself silted up and was eventually filled in to form a recreation ground. (1) The mill is marked as 'Corn Mill (disused)' on a late 19th century OS map. (2)
