Gayle Mill Heritage Attraction Stately Home in Gayle, West Yorkshire, England


19th century state of the art sawmill, complete with working Victorian machinery and water-powered turbines.

Gayle Mill is owned by the North of England Civic Trust (NECT) and operated by Gayle Mill Trust (GMT).

After coming third in the national final of the bbc 'Restoration' series in 2004, capital funds were raised by nect to stabilise the building and restore all the water-powered systems and Victorian machinery.

GMT also secured funding to set the Mill up as an operating company with four principal business lines:

A heritage attraction open to the public
A wood-product manufactory and timber services provider
A training and teaching venue
A net producer of electricity
Visit Gayle Mill, a unique 19th century state of the art sawmill, complete with working Victorian machinery and water-powered turbines. Now fully restored and operating as an historic visitor attraction.

All visits to Gayle Mill are Tour Guide led.
On one of our Daily Guided Tours you will:

Explore a typical three storey mill built in 1784 to a Richard Arkwright design. Originally established to process raw cotton, it was converted to a mechanised saw mill in 1879.
Gain a unique insight into the workings of a woodworking mill that served the local community for over a century.
See English water-powered cutting edge woodworking technology installed in 1879 that is still in regular use today.
Experience the atmosphere of the historic sawmill as the water-powered turbines spin to life.
Discover 230 years of industrial and social heritage.

On one of our special two hour Demonstration Tours you will experience all aspects of a “Daily Guided Tour” described above and also see and hear the original 1879 water-powered Victorian machinery being demonstrated. Booking is strongly advised. Winter 2012 tours will now feature the wooden bike built by Guy Martin as seen on Channel 4’s “How Britain Worked”.
For details of the dates and times when these tours take place, see Tour Times
