History

The Millstone at Mellor has a wonderfully rich history dating back to 1750 when the Eddleston family built the Millstone for the sole purpose of giving the 22 farms in the village a place where they could mill their flour. As a remarkable coincidence the son of our founder and owners Daniel Thwaites, is buried in the churchyard at Mellor – just a stone’s throw away from Mellor.

The Millstone can still be seen outside so you can see the heritage of our small, but perfectly formed inn.
