Ashford Dale Sawmill is located on the banks of the River Wye, close to the village of Ashford in the Water, Derbyshire.

It is thought that the mill was first used as a bone crushing mill but was converted to a sawmill. Three waterwheels survive, they are a 13 feet diameter
ventilated breast wheel, a 12 feet low breast wheel and a small breast wheel driving a water pump which formerly supplied Sheldon village.

Today the mill use in private use.
