At risk for many years, the condition of the Category A listed complex of mill buildings and machinery had become critical and saving them required a major programme of repair and renewal. All of the listed buildings were restored and, excepting the mill itself, adapted for new uses.
The visitor reception, café, toilets and education facilities were provided in the byre, which was extended using the footprint of former lean-to buildings, while the mill house was adapted to house design studios and staff. Interventions were designed to be contemporary yet sympathetic in terms of scale and materials. The historic machinery was stored and repaired during the project.
