Gleaston Watermill
Gleaston Watermill
Although the first record of a water mill at Gleaston is in 1608, the mill site was probably in use at least a century before. Today's buildings date from the 1770s while the water wheel is Victorian.
The water supply is from three sources - Gleaston Beck (which often dries up in the summer), Lime Kiln Spring and the spring behind the farm buildings.
