Fallgate Mill

Fallgate Mill
Fallgate Mill at Ashover is an ancient corn mill, dated 1781 but incorporating earlier structures, that continued in use until the 1950s, latterly used for crushing fluorspar. It is listed Grade II and has recently been converted to a house although it still incorporates the gearing and stones. John M Else was the miller in 1891.

The building seen at the rear was a power station built by the Clay Cross Company in the 1920s to provide electricity to the nearby limestone quarries.

Great photo, I like the light on the building and dark vegetation and cloud beyond.

I see the water pipe and wheel but I don't understand the source of the water. Where is the creek/dam which supplies it?

There is a river to the left (River Amber) and the water is drawn from above a weir about half a mile away.
