cast-iron H-section columns supporting large timber beams. On the site of a
medieval fulling mill situated next to the river crossing of Yore Bridge
(qv), and replacing a late C18 cotton mill burnt down in 1853. Rebuilt as a
combined corn and woollen mill, but by the late C19 was used only as a corn
mill, making it one of the largest in the Dales. The mill was refitted with
a roller plant in 1937, when the cowls were installed, and the waterwheel
was replaced by turbines. The building now houses a large collection of
horse-drawn carriages.
