We're delighted to announce that Little Salkeld Watermill was awarded the SPAB  (Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) Mills Section Conservation Award 2009. The Mill was unable to receive the award personally, but was represented at a special presentation at Belvoir Castle where SPAB Mills Section vice chairman James Waterfield presented a plaque to Nick Jones.

We're delighted to announce that Ian Morley from Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne, has won a £50 Watermill Gift Voucher as a result of completing the "mini questionnaire" we invited visitors to the tearoom to complete earlier this year. We asked visitors how they heard about the mill. The results confirmed our thinking - 33% of visitors hear about us through recommendations from friends and family; 12% are just passing; 20% from our publicity in various places; 15% are looking us up after a visit some time ago. read more »
