Warwick Bridge Corn Mill
Warwick Bridge Corn Mill
A water mill built in 1839 for the Howard family of Corby Castle. It was in use grinding oats for animal feed until 1989, and much of the machinery, including the water wheel, is still intact.
The buildings had been deteriorating for some years, but a restoration scheme is now in place. The North of England Civic Trust acquired the mill in 2015, and hope to have it working again within a few years LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) .
The site was flooded in December 2015, but the wreckage in the foreground of this photo is not as disastrous as it might look. It was the floor of a shed which had already been demolished, and was due be removed as part of the renovation work.
