Mill Lane - River Erewash
Kirkby in Ashfield
This mill photograph has the title of 'Fryer's Mill'. The 1881 Ordnance Survey map shows the mill as Kirkby Mill (Flour). It was located down Mill Lane (near Bentinck Colliery) on the River Erewash, which it would have used as a source of water, and had a river fed mill pond to act as a reservoir to power the milling machinery.
