Welcome to High Corn Mill…

…one of Skipton’s best kept secrets!

Set along the picturesque Leeds-Liverpool canal in the heart of Skipton, the mill is a fascinating historical building that now serves as a thoroughly modern retail and office complex.

Fully renovated, the mill provides fabulous premises for a number of independently owned shops and businesses – all just a stone’s throw from Skipton High Street which was recently voted ‘Street of The Year’.

While geared up to the 21st century, High Corn Mill also retains strong links with its medieval past: the waterwheel has been restored and a brand new water turbine generator has also been installed. This can be viewed within the Mill’s Historical Innovation Zone, where visitors can learn more about how the Mill provides power, via the National Grid for up to 20 local buildings.

High Corn Mill is located at the gateway to Skipton Castle Woods, a historic woodland which was once part of a great hunting woodland that stretched across North Yorkshire. What remains of that great wood is now one of England’s rare ancient woodland sites. Why not organise a walk through the woods starting from High Corn Mill? Click here to download the Earl of Thanet Walking Trail; a relatively strenuous 4km / 2.5 circular walking route which showcases some of Skipton’s industrial heritage, the woods’ upper paths, before finishing at Skipton Castle itself. More moderate walking trails are also available.
