WARWICK BRIDGE CORN MILL

The Corn Mill is situated at the heart of historic Warwick Bridge in Cumbria. Records show that there has been a mill on this site since at least the mid 12th Century and that the current Mill was built in around 1802, with most of the present structure dating to a rebuild of 1839.

Increasing vulnerability and an uncertain future resulted in the Corn Mill being added to the Heritage at Risk Register in 2000. The catastrophic floods of 2005 and 2015 and further neglect accelerated the decline.

Cultura Trust acquired the Mill in 2014 and Mosedale Gillatt Architects were then appointed to deliver a scheme of restoration alongside the creation of an artisan bakery on site. Innovative technology was also used to integrate a hydro-generator that takes power directly from the main mill wheel.
