Castle Bolton – SE 026939
Very little is known about this mill, which was in Lord Bolton’s East and West Bolton liberty. According to Dr Raistrick, mines were leased in this area from 1657, and the mill may, therefore, date from the seventeenth century. It is shown on Teesdale’s 1828 map, but was a ruin by 1854.
