Brindley’s Mill

Discover this mid eighteenth-century working corn mill celebrating the work of James Brindley, millwright and canal engineer renowned as the pioneer of the canal system in Great Britain. Dating from 1752 the mill has been restored from a derelict state by the Brindley Mill Preservation Trust and is the only known corn mill attributable as the work of James Brindley. Leek Architecture 308

Brindley’s Mill has all the charm associated with a building of the period and illustrates James Brindley’s trademark design.

The mill building houses a museum designed to enhance the interest of your visit. Displays illustrate the life and work of James Brindley and the history of milling, while preserving the atmosphere of a working corn mill.

Experience the sight and sound of a moving waterwheel powering machinery and millstones and admire the genius of the millwright and the skills of the miller as you explore this fascinating building.Leek Architecture 311
