Gayle Mill
Gayle Mill
Currently under restoration this mill was first used for cotton, then flax and then wool. In the 19thC it was converted into a sawmill. In 1879 a Williamson turbine was installed to replace the waterwheel.

"The woodworking machinery, installed about the same time as the turbine, is also of historical interest, as are the remains of the millís early twentieth century electricity generating system. Individually, each represents the rare survival of important historic elements, but together, they make Gayle Mill outstanding, recognised by its status as a Scheduled Ancient Monument and Grade II* Listed Building."
