Cheddleton Flint Mill

Cheddleton Flint Mill is a water mill situated in the village of Cheddleton in the English county of Staffordshire. The mill race takes water from the river Churnet and the site is believed to have been used for milling since the Middle Ages. However, the present structures date from the period of the Industrial Revolution. There are actually two mills: one was purpose-built to grind flint for use in the pottery industry,[1] and the other was converted to the same purpose from use as a corn-mill.[2] The mill complex includes a miller's cottage, two flint kilns, a drying kiln and outbuildings, and is adjacent to the Caldon Canal.

The complex was listed grade II* in 1986 (the buildings being separately listed).[2] It is now maintained and operated by the Cheddleton Flint Mill Industrial Heritage Trust.[3]
