watermills Cumbria County Council selling the 16th Century Eskdale Mill

Cumbria County Council who own Eskdale Mill in Boot are selling it since they cannot afford its maintenance costs.

Local people are appalled at the lack of public consultation. The newly formed Eskdale Mill and Heritage Trust, hopes to bid for the mill and keep it open, since there are fears that a private buyer will not do so, but use the property as a residence. The mill is unusual in that it has 2 waterwheels, and is in working order.
