Allenheads Mill – NY85064642

The first mill was built here around 1725, but it was extended and a 3 km long flue was added in the nineteenth century.

In 1821 it was owned and run by Colonel & Mrs Beaumont and was equipped with one roasting furnace, three ore hearths, and a slag hearth.

The mill was closed in 1870.
