Weathervane, Warwick Bridge Corn Mill, Carlisle

This is the Howard lion, the heraldic device, signifying that in 1839 this mill belonged to the Corby Castle estate, but the history of corn milling on the site is recorded from the C12. We are restoring the mill back to full operation in a £2m project benefiting from wide support including the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England, trusts and local community.

Here is what we make of it

We are excited to announce the next chapter in the story of our charity.

Founded in 1965, we have had a formative role in UK civil society for over 50 years. In the 1980’s we began bringing historic landmark buildings back into productive reuse. Since the 1990’s we have contributed to some of the UK’s most successful urban regeneration programmes, demonstrating that historic areas are economic assets. For over a decade we have had a leading national role in traditional skills training, recognised with a European award. For 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage we were the UK national coordinator: within the context of Brexit and as one of 33 participating countries, we hosted a top-performing programme of over 600 events all over the UK.

The contribution cultural heritage makes in society should have no limits. We are now Cultura Trust; not constrained by place or barriers, we are free to be what society needs us to be. Culture – Cultura in Latin – is international and inclusive. It is about our traditions and values, the way we do things; it is creative and involves everyone. We are making all that NECT has stood for even more accessible and relevant.

 

An exciting opportunity to invest in the running of Warwick Bridge Corn Mill

Tuesday 12th November marks the launch of the next exciting phase in the life of Warwick Bridge Corn Mill. After a major renovation programme of the mill and its historic machinery, funded through grants and donations from a range of sources including the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England, the Architectural Heritage Fund and other private trusts and community groups, we are offering local people and others interested in historic mills, industrial heritage and real bread enthusiasts the opportunity to invest and be involved in the delivery of our vision for the mill.

The community benefit society, Warwick Bridge Corn Mill Ltd, is aiming to raise £120,000 through a community share offer to fit out a bakery, to be run by an experienced social enterprise “Breadshare”. Sales of its bread and flour, produced from UK sourced wheat and stone ground on site, along with bread-making classes and mill tours, will support the upkeep of the Grade II* listed landmarks as a community resource. Our aim is to create a sustainable future for the corn mill that will preserve this key asset for years to come and enhance a sense of community in Warwick Bridge and the surrounding areas.

The share offer will be launched at the meeting at Downagate Community Centre, Warwick Bridge at 7pm and full details will be available on the night, and online at www.warwickbridgecornmill.co.uk
