Gayle Mill Nr Hawes, Yorkshire Dales

Gayle Mill is a 19th  century saw mill, which has been extensively restored, complete with working Victorian machinery, which was state of the art when it was installed.

The mill was built in 1784, as a cotton mill , following a Richard Arkwright design and used the abundant water supply to power the machinery.  Originally established to process raw cotton, it was converted to a mechanised saw mill in 1879.

There are daily tours and special demonstration tours, taking place throughout the year, as well as special seasonal events.

Gayle Mill is in easy reach of High Blean at Semer Water, at just 5 miles distance, using the picturesque back road, past Semer Water, on through Countersett, and Burtersett to Gayle.
