Coulton Mill, Hovingham
Grid reference: SE 643 736
Postcode: YO62 4ND
In a valley between the villages of Coulton and Scackleton in North Yorkshire.
Reputed to be referred to in documents from the 13th century, although local knowledge
says that the gearing is from the 18th. The mill is not operational as the gearing is too fragile,
and is in almost the same condition as the present owners found it. The undergrowth and trees have been removed
together with some of the corrugated iron from the hurst frame, otherwise it is as it stopped in the late 1940s.
Open on special days only and by appointment.
