Cheddleton Flint Mill
Cheddleton, once a pretty and rural community now has the appearance of having already suffered from too much development one of the consequences that current central government policy seeks to protect rural communities against. Whether it can cope with more development is a moot point. It is unclear whether the residents of Cheddleton have been meaningfully consulted about the options concerning development in their community.
The mill itself is unfortunately positioned at a point of the road access that creates both a traffic hazard and a problem if there is to be an increase in public visitor parking. The site is restricted by private land interests that limit the opportunity of enlarging the parking facilities, therefore expansion of tourist visits seems limited to walkers.
