Higherford Mill and Chimney

Higherford Mill and its chimney on the hillside behind are truly amazing old buildings. The mill has the oldest weaving shed in the world which was powered by a rare twin race water system as well as steam power.

It’s amazing to think that, had it not been for Heritage Trust for the North West, this mill complex would have been completely demolished in the late 1990s.
