The Corn Mill building increasingly deteriorated and was placed on the Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register. In 2015 Cultura Trust (previously known as North of England Civic Trust) managed to buy the mill with grants from English Heritage, Heritage Lottery fund and other sources. Plans were put into place to restore the fabric building, the waterwheel and historic milling machinery.
Historic Property Restoration are delighted to have secured the £1.2M project funded by the Heritage Lottery, to restore Warwick Bridge Corn Mill in conjunction with The North of England Civic Trust.
This unique restoration project involves masonry repairs and repointing to the main building and windows plus work on the roof to ensure slates are secure. The Kiln structure will be repaired and restored to bring this building back into beneficial use as a heritage centre and artisan bakery. This historic building will retain its place in the heart of the village and once again will contribute towards the local economy.
