Heatherslaw Corn Mill

The power of water harnessed; unchanged for centuries

Welcome to Heatherslaw Corn Mill

The power of the River Till has been recognised since the 13th century and there has been a mill on this site for over 700 years. Heatherslaw Corn Mill continues to be a working mill to this day – a place where the past really does live and breathe.

Explore this historic building and watch the milling process from beginning to end. On your visit you can learn how millers produce flour, from wheat grown in the local surrounding fields, just as they have done here for long centuries. Heatherslaw Corn Mill is the only place in Northumberland where you can experience the sight, sound and smell of a traditional mill and is a member of the Traditional Cornmillers Guild.

Please be aware that if the river is running too high, or too low, the waterwheel cannot operate. There is still plenty to see and do on a visit.

We are currently without a miller on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so on these days the mill will not be operational. However you are still welcome to tour the mill, but we will only charge £2 to adults and children go free.
