Off A515, ¾ mile off the Alstonefield Road, just by the fork to Milldale.
Mill is on N side of road, at bend.
Lode Mill, on the River Dove, has been derelict for over
fifty years, but has been undergoing a renovation as a holiday let for the last
five years. It is unusual in that much of the original machinery still exists
including a wooden Hurst Frame housing three pairs of stones.
The mill structure is interesting internally, and is detailed in
archaeological surveys available at
