Brindley's Mill & James Brindley Museum
Discover this charming mid-eighteenth century working corn mill and experience the sights and sounds of a moving waterwheel which powers machinery and millstones.
On the ground floor or ‘meal’ floor, you’ll find a large wheel in a pit that distributes power to the mill stones on the next floor, which is called the ‘stone’ floor. On this floor you can see how the power of the water from the River Churnet is forwarded through the massive wheel to the millstones.
On the top or ‘garner’ floor, you will discover a museum where you will learn all about the history of milling and the life and work of James Brindley, the pioneer of the canal system in Great Britain.
You’ll also have the chance to see traditional tools in the museum as well as Brindley’s own possessions.
