Eskdale Mill 2024

Possibly the oldest working watermill in England. Original machinery driven by two wheels still in daily operation. The mill has reopened following a £1million restoration project. This Grade II* Listed building is the only working water-powered corn mill in the Lake District National Park and it tells the story of the millers and their role in the local community of Eskdale.
