Gleaston Water Mill

0 reviews


The Mill and adjacent buildings have been restored by the owners, Mike and Vicky Brereton, to provide public access to a working water corn mill, Dusty Miller’s tea and coffee shop serving quality home made food,

Pig’s Whisper Country Store, and a converted pig sty – now a holiday cottage.

Characteristic of the Cumbrian rural landscape, this imposing watermill and site has been part of the local traditions for over 400 years. Located close to the ruins of Gleaston Castle, the present building dates from 1774, with the impressive wooden gearing being original to the 1700s.Visitors to the mill can see the 18 foot (5.5 metre) waterwheel and machinery operating most days.
