About Mill Top, Scalegill.

There has probably been a mill on this site since Roman times. The present building, dating from 1795, was erected as a cotton mill. The mill then became a joiner's shop and sawmill, a chicken farm and a holiday complex, before being sold as separate units in 1999.

'Mill Top' is a delightful, sunny, second floor apartment at the front of the mill, with views across the garden to the River Aire and down the valley. The eight acres of grounds, through which you can stroll, include gardens, woodland, the mill leet and pond. There are also many places where you can sit and enjoy a drink, a picnic or read a book, including the patio at the front which is a real sun trap. Wildlife is prolific both in the woods and around the mill, and birds include goldfinches, dippers, heron, moorhens and, if you are lucky, a kingfisher.
