There are a number of walks that can be planned to include the mill as it is close to Ashford in the Water as well as Monsal Dale and the nearby Sheldon Village with its Mining History and the remains of Magpie Mine.

Views taken close to Chelmorton near Buxton as the snow begins to thaw, it had mostly all gone by mid afternoon despite the cold start to the day when many cross Pennine routes were closed due to the treacherous conditions as a result of snow and freezing temperatures.
