News from High Corn Mill
by Craven and Valley Life
There’s more news from The Home Company, Skipton’s long established furniture and furnishings store. Andrew Mear, the owner of High Corn Mill, has taken over the running of the business from Robert Hadaway who is retiring after 34 years. Supporting Andrew is the long established sales team of Linda Lee and Michelle Swinscoe.
The Home Company has also taken on some new recruits. Amanda Fellows, sales consultant, Mark Smith who will be responsible for developing the company’s website and Richard Judge who will be delivering the company’s furniture and furnishings orders within the local Yorkshire/ Lancashire area.
On Friday 16th October, The Home Company is holding an event to launch the opening of its fantastic new showrooms. There will be entertainment, food and drink from Rachaels Kitchen and exciting discounts.
High Corn Mill is just a stone’s throw from Skipton’s award winning High Street. One of the oldest buildings in the town, the mill is home to a fascinating taste of history along with a mix of quality independent shops, health, beauty and wellness services and businesses.
Visit The Waterwheel House, a free, fun and educational attraction for all of the family. Located within the heart of the building is the chance to see the water wheel and water turbine, which was installed six years ago as part of a £200,000 environmental initiative, generating power for the building and surrounding properties.
Open seven days a week, visitors can view see all the inner workings and get a close up view of the giant water wheel – “pull the handle to turn the wheel”.
Over the centuries, High Corn Mill has seen many changes and developments but it remains independently owned by a family business committed to maintaining its environmental integrity.
Ongoing renovation and restoration has transformed the ancient building into a delightful new community of thoroughly modern shops and businesses that ensure the mill remains as relevant to the town today as it has been for more than 600 years.
