Our History

The history of the mill

Built in 1836, Castleton Mill was designed for steam powered flax spinning, in the 1850s a weaving shed was added for wool and linen manufacture. It is one of three remaining mills of its type in the UK.

Throughout the renovation of the mill, our key aim was to restore and enhance the original features, as well as promote the cultural significance of the building – both past and present.
