Froghall Mill
Froghall Mill
The mill at Froghall started life grinding corn but was best known in the 19th and 20th centuries as a colour mill, grinding pigments for the potteries, the dyeing industry and for paint. Materials used included limestone from Caldon Low Quarry and haematite from Cherryeye Mine. The mill last ran in 1995. It is now surrounded by an "End of Life Vehicle Take Back Facility", a.k.a. scrapyard.
