Cheddleton Flint Mill includes two water mills, a miller's cottage, two flint kilns, a drying kiln and outbuildings. The Caldon Canal, which would have supplied the mill by narrow boat, passes by. The complex is Grade II* listed.

The earliest reference to milling at Cheddleton dates back to 1253. Another document, dating to 1694, refers to corn milling at the site. In the late 18th century the complex was converted to grind flint.
