A HISTORIC mill will be open to the visitors this upcoming half-term.

The historic Eskdale Mill in the village of Boot will be open to the public this October half-term.

Thanks to ongoing funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Eskdale Mill has been open since August for two days a week.

Measures are in place to ensure Covid-safe visits, including a new reception area, one-way flows, an online booking system and, of course, regular sanitising. As a result, the mill has received 'Good to Go' recognition from Visit England.
