15 Nether Mill

River Sheaf

Map of Abbeydale

The River Sheaf in Abbeydale

This mill was used for lead smelting from 1658. In 1800 it was recorded as a corn mill. A trade directory of 1814 shows that it was used as a scythe grinding mill. In a map of the area in 1874, the mill and dam were no longer shown on the site.
The building of the Sheffield and Bakewell railway and the houses of Totley Brook estate in the 1890's completely removed all evidence of Nether Wheel, and its dam and goits.
