Madeley, Staffordshire

A significant feature and well-known landmark of the village is Madeley Mill standing on the dam for the pool. During its history the mill was used for grinding grain but prior to its closure, production was turned over to cheese making. It fell into disrepair before being developed and converted into apartments in the early 1990s saving it from proposed demolition by the local council. There was a butchers shop opposite the pool that was run by Arthur Bailey.

Staffordshire Coalfield Northern Mine Research Society

The former area is also associated with two outlying coalfields to the east. One, a thin strip of coal measures, runs north-south around Shaffalong and had no modern mining. The other, a larger area, is centred on Cheadle and was worked until the 1990s. Relatively little has been written about this large and important coalfield, but there have been some recent studies. 1-20. Leach, J. Coal
