In the heart of the Lake District
Eskdale Mill is located in the lovely hamlet of Boot - a gem set in one of lakeland's most beautiful valleys.
Set on the leafy banks of Whillan Beck, which cascades down from the flanks of Scafell, Eskdale Mill still boasts its historic working machinery, and is one of the oldest water powered corn mills in England, and is now the last remaining working mill in the lake District. This historic building and its unique machinery, has been Grade2* listed and is a vital survivor of a vanishing heritage
These are exciting times at Eskdale Mill. Following the retirement of the long-serving miller/custodian, enthusiastic volunteers are tidying up the site, carrying out essential maintenance, and opening up for visitors on some days.
