    Default Langwith Mill, Nether Langwith, Nottinghamshire – July 2017


    Langwith Mill, Nether Langwith, Nottinghamshire – July 2017

    The 4th and final stop on Mookster and my July Northern Road Trip. Nestled almost in a sort of Farm Yard in Nottinghamshire; next to a disused Restaurant (Goff's Restaurant); a rather odd place for an eatery in a very rural location. Access did involve a bit of grazing field to get up to the mill.

    The disused mill is a four storey Cotton Mill which was constructed in 1786. The mill was originally sixteen windows wide, which would have made Langwith one of the largest mills in the district.

    Cotton spinning at Langwith Mill ceased around 1848 and the place was converted into a Corn Mill in 1886. Langwith was still operating after WWII.

    The Mill was built in limestone with a slate roof which is now holed and in poor condition. Langwith was powered by a large water wheel fed from a dam nearby which is now a meadow.



    The site is a curtilage building to the Grade II listed Langwith Mill House and a building of Local Interest in its own right. The listing was applied in 1985 as the mill is a site of Local Historical Interest.

    It’s in pretty poor condition in places!

    Pretty poor condition is an understatement, it's one of the most treacherous buildings I've ever set foot in.
