Belford and Budle Bay
Fenham Mill began life as an outlying part of the Monastery of Lindisfarne, as recorded in 1339. Over the years its site altered but it continued to mill flour for the area until the beginning of the 20th century.
A dovecote or a mill? The reasons for building Spindlestone Duckett have been a subject of argument over the years.
The Spindlestone Mill buildings on the Waren Burn, inland from Budle Bay, had their origins in a mediaeval water mill believed to have been on the same site.
The History of Waren House
The story of how a house built for the millers at Waren Mill transformed first into a gentleman's residence and then to the superior hotel it is today.
Waren Mill today was built in the late 18th century, as an enterprise to industrialise this part of Northumberland, although there had been an earlier mill at Waren.
