Based in the quiet Eskdale valley, Eskdale Mill is a visitor centre open for public enjoyment. It is the last remaining working water-powered corn mill in the Lake District National Park and contributed to its World Heritage Site status.
It features original working machinery driven by two waterwheels along with interactive displays and exhibitions and a scenic woodland grounds suitable for picnics.
The mill is at the centre of a huddle of buildings in Boot village adjacent to the fast-flowing Whillan Beck, which flows off the fells above. The quirky buildings and their setting create an authentic historic atmosphere which provides a chance to step back into a bygone era and experience a quality time with something to do for eveybody.
