Eskdale Mill reviews
Well worth a visit; helpful staff, beautifully restored telling the story of the Mill and interesting facts about the local area. The cascades were amazing the day we visited and the outside area... more »
Visited today for the first time with our family (kids 8 and 14). We all loved it - lovely, enthusiastic and knowledgable volunteers; COVID-safe environment; brilliant to see the mill in action... more »
Excellent..... the welcome and information from the woman selling tickets was great, the quality of this renovated water mill is superb, then the enthusiasm and wealth of information from a volunteer explaining everything to visitors as you went around was really good. This mill is really quite impressive and if you have the odd mechanical bone in your body, you're going to find the three water wheels, sluices and channels outside fascinating, as I did. Inside, everything works as you move from one room to another. We had a considerable flow of information from the volunteer on duty to guide us, as he talked us through the machinery and processes, stage by stage. Historical context, social background and practical use of the equipment was explained and even if you don't get chance to listen, there are plenty of information boards. The woman in the ticket office came out to chat again, as we finished our tour. All in all, excellent!! These small and important ventures are really worthwhile supporting. If you take the Ratty to Dalegarth Station, take time to walk up to Boot and have a look at this mill. It isn't expensive and they will welcome your interest!!
Recently reopened (July 19) after a big refurbishment. oldest working water mill in Cumbria, with 3 working water wheels. Friendly welcome & dogs are all all allowed too. Lots of information on three history of flour milling here over the years. Well worth a visit.
