Thwaite Mills is one of the last remaining examples in Britain of a water-powered mill and their knowledgeable guides give visitors a fantastic tour of the mill and the island on which it sits.
Thwaite Mills is an eco-friendly working watermill, with creaking waterwheels and lush fields and woodlands all perfect for butterflies, birds and bumblebees. Much of the work they do at Thwaite Mills is centred around the environment and how they can keep it looking beautiful and working harmoniously with us.
Why not step back in time inside Thwaite House, a fine Georgian Grade II listed building. Learn how workers from the cottages at ‘Dandy Row’ lived self-sufficiently on the island or visit the engineer’s workshop to see the equipment that repaired the wheels and machinery on site.
