High Corn Mill – a fun, free and educational day out for all the family
High Corn Mill is just a stone’s throw away from Skipton’s award winning High Street. One of the oldest buildings in town, the mill is home to a fascinating taste of history along with a mix of quality independent shops, health, beauty and wellness services and businesses.
Visitors can also enjoy the unique Waterwheel House - a free, fun and educational attraction for all the family. Located within the heart of the building it houses the original water wheel and a hydroelectric turbine creating enough energy to power up to 20 homes around the local area.
Open seven days a week, visitors can step back in time as they walk through an interactive cavern of historical treasures, and view the inner workings of the mill. It also offers a close up view of the giant water wheel and the fun pulling a handle to set it in motion. There is also an educational video offering you a glimpse of the building’s history over 600 years.
You simply haven’t seen Skipton if you haven’t been to High Corn Mill!
