reference: SK 494 585
OS sheet: 120
The mill is
situated at the very bottom of Prospect Place (off High Pavement),
Sutton in Ashfield.
A stone-built tower mill, built c.1823 by
James Lindley to replace an earlier post mill destroyed by a gale in
1818. It was worked until 1895 after which it gradually became ruinous.
The structure has been consolidated in recent years and re-roofed, and
the intention is to create educational displays in the mill.
