The small village of Boot is home to the Eskdale Mill. This delightful water corn mill invites you to step back in time and discover restored waterwheels, interactive exhibitions, and milling machinery, all set in beautiful grounds. It's a great way to escape the daily grind! Fun activities are on offer for all the family and well-behaved dogs are welcome.
The mill is the last remaining working water-powered corn mill in the Lake District National Park and its deeds date back to 1737. It is set on the north side of the fast-flowing Whillan Beck, which is where one of our steam engines takes its name from.
