Gayle Mill, situated near the upper Wensleydale market town of Hawes, is an 18th century mill of national significance, as recognised by it’s Grade II* status.
It was built in the 1780’s, originally as a Cotton Mill, but for the last 100 years of it’s life was operated as a sawmill.
It contains much of the original Victorian wood-working machinery and what is believed to be the oldest in situ working water turbine in Europe – possibly the world.
