Statement on Gayle Mill

Bainbridge, 22 January, 2018

The North of England Civic Trust (NECT) – which owns Gayle Mill, one of the finest industrial heritage sites in the Yorkshire Dales National Park – has formally announced the temporary closure of the mill.

The Director of Conservation and Community at the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, Gary Smith, said: “Gayle Mill is both a national treasure and treasured locally.  That is why the Authority gave more than £140,000 towards its restoration between 2003 and 2007.  

“The mill is a really important part of the tourism offer in Gayle and Hawes, and we want to see it conserved and brought back into use again as soon as possible.   We know how much time and effort has already gone into restoring and then running the mill.   The Authority stands ready to assist if it can.”
