watermills Gibson Mill reopened to the public

The National Trust owned water powered cotton mill of Gibson Mill in Hardcastle Crags, Yorkshire has reopened after an extensive renovation, partly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The vision for the mill is to run the centre, for locals and visitors, in a sustainable way. The mill generates its own electricity via turbines (both a restored 1927 one, and a modern one), with solar and biomass energy sources also involved. Even the lifts are human powered!
