Foster Beck Flax Mill

This impressive waterwheel is situated near to The Bridge Inn, just outside Pateley Bridge.

Built in 1887, which is late for a water powered mill, this mill produced linen until the 1960's. The 34ft diameter wheel was supplied with water from nearby Foster Beck. The building was once the 'Watermill Inn', but that has since closed and it has been converted into houses & flats. Anyone desperate for a drink need only go a few yards to the Bridge Inn.
