Grist to the Mill

Warwick Bridge Corn Mill project receives £1,379,300 for new lease of life

North of England Civic Trust (NECT) is excited to announce that it has been awarded a grant of £1,379,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) towards its ambitious £2m project for the historic corn mill in Warwick Bridge.

NECT is also very grateful for the support of the Architectural Heritage Fund throughout the development period for this project and beyond. Their help and shared vision for the future of this last unrestored corn mill in Cumbria has been crucial in getting us to this point.

The mill as seen today has remained almost unchanged as part of the village and its life since the 1840s, though it can trace its origins back to the era of the Doomsday Book. Its future has been uncertain, so this lifeline support from HLF is the essential catalyst NECT has been hoping for. The project will bring the mill back into full working order as both an asset for the community and its local economy.
