About the Pub

This restored late 18th century mill is just visible from junction 25 on the M62 motorway. Originally the site of a flour mill in 1086, the present Grade II listed structure was abandoned due to flooding in 1947, but converted into the Old Corn Mill in the nineties. Following refurbishment in 2003, it was renamed the Corn Mill. Having been built within a ruin, the interior of this dining pub is essentially modern. The garden, which overlooks the river with its lovely views, can accommodate up to 100 people, whilst the surviving mill race is inscribed 'July 27th 1874'.

Historic Interest

The Old Mill first opened as a country pub restaurant in 1988, but the history of the site as a mill dates back almost 1,000 years. It was already described as ‘the old myll’ in the Kirklees Priory foundation charter in 1155, when Reyner le Fleming established a Cistercian nunnery within the Manor of Clifton, on an estate stretching to the banks of the River Calder. After the dissolution of the monasteries, John Armytage bought the estate in 1565 and the mill remained in the hands of this distinguished local family until 1983, when it was sold following the death of Sir John Armytage. The present mill and mill race were built in 1785 with two waterwheels, one for grinding corn and one to drive the fulling mill, where local wool was cleansed and thickened.
