Risbury Mill, near Stoke Prior

Location
Grid reference: SO 540 550
OS sheet: 149
Postcode: HR6 0NG

The entrance is by the bridge over the Humber Brook, on the road from Risbury towards Stoke Prior.
This small 18th century corn mill is in an idyllic situation formerly fed from the Humber Brook, but it has lost its water supply. The 19th century machinery, two of the three pairs of millstones, and the frame of the external overshot waterwheel remain. Extra storage room has been obtained by the upward brick extension of the mill. There is a large flour dresser on the first floor, and a grain cleaner has been installed nearby with a remarkably complex drive. A small complete mill in a lovely setting.
