Fully renovated, the mill provides fabulous premises for a number of independently owned shops and businesses – all just a stone’s throw from Skipton High Street.
While geared up to the 21st century, High Corn Mill also retains strong links with its medieval past: the waterwheel has been restored and a water turbine generator was commissioned and installed in 2010 and supplies power, via the National Grid, for up to 20 local buildings. The waterwheel forms the centrepiece of the mill’s Waterwheel House where there is a specially created viewing areas to enable visitors to see some of the original machinery used to process the corn, and a second waterwheel which visitors can turn by pulling a lever that releases water from the mill’s pond.
The Waterwheel House is free to visit and open to everyone.
As well as the interesting mix of shops and businesses at the mill, the Historical Innovation Zone gives visitors an insight into the workings behind the medieval mill. This attraction is free to all. The Historical Innovation Zone is open to the public to view the water wheel and the turbine every day.
Free parking on site for all customers.
