Parking by Howsham Bridge, you take a riverside walk to this beautifully restored Mill. Recreation is encouraged for water enthusiasts especially. The Mill is powered by a mechanical screw. A Disabled Access Route is available.

OK, not a great deal to see here but it is a pleasant area, and the mill is a curious building, gothick but without original machinery. However the archimedean screws generating electricity from the Derwent at the nearby weir are interesting. The chap on duty...More
