Art at Nether Cut Wheel

Nether Cut Wheel was one of the few mills still working when the Rivelin Valley Artists were painting in the 1920s. Men were grinding scythes here until the late 1930s. This must have made it particularly appealing to the painters. Robert Scott-Temple’s large oil painting of the mill in its riverside setting is particularly impressive, and shows the crystal clear quality of the river, the stone foot-bridge giving access for workers from Stannington, and the relatively open nature of the valley. Ben Baines’ watercolour shows the position of the water wheel that provided the mill with its power..
