Weardale Mills

weardale book coverA book came my way recently which has managed to shed a little light on more of our local mills; specifically those in Weardale.  The Disappearing Mills and Bread Ovens of Weardale by Christine Ruskin, was published in 2017.  The book more specifically covers corn mills but managed to add two new sites to the database, Frosterley Mill and Goosecroft Mill.  new information like this is always useful and just helps add to the understanding of the subject.  Detailed research in a local area often highlights sites that have not come to light through more general research and some mills simply get missed when pouring over maps and plans.
