Heatherslaw Corn Mill

Heatherslaw Mill Heatherslaw Mill

Welcome to the Heatherslaw Corn Mill!

On the banks of the River Till, this is the only working water mill in Northumberland. Powered by a 16 ft water wheel, there is a history of over 700 years of milling on this site.

The fully-restored mill machinery, including three different pairs of millstones, still makes high quality, stoneground, wholemeal flour from wheat grown in the local fields.

You can explore the historic building, watch the milling process from beginning to end and see our 21st-Century millers at work. The family-friendly exhibition also gives kids a chance to explore a miller’s life. Education visits are always welcome and there are a great range of experiences available for under 11s.

Why not stop for a relaxing cup of tea at the Heatherslaw Tearoom, and visit the gift shop to buy some delicious flour or cereals to take home. You can continue your day by exploring the visitor centre or take a trip on the famous Heatherslaw Light Railway over the bridge.

Watch the short film below to get a preview of what you'll see on your visit!

Groups (of 11+ people) are always welcome and special rates are available, please contact us for more information.

Accessibility:  Heatherslaw Mill is a listed building accessed by 7 stone steps with a handrail to one side.  Once inside the building the 3 floors are linked by open wooden staircases with handrails both sides.  Car parking for the Corn Mill is situated over the bridge adjacent to the B6354 and opposite Heatherslaw Railway. The walk from the car park to the Corn Mill is about 200 yards with a slight incline from car park to bridge then a level surface. For those with mobility problems there is disabled car parking outside the Visitor Centre, accessed from the B6353 at the T-junction which displays a 'No Through Road' sign. Turn into this road and follow it for about a mile - you will come to the Heatherslaw Mill site where you will see signs for disabled parking. If in doubt please telephone in advance for advice.  There is a DVD about the Corn Mill which can be shown in the Visitor Centre to anyone who is unable to access the Mill itself.

  • "We visit every year – always something different to see.  Lovely place."
