This was once a busy corn mill, in operation from the early 1800s and closing in the 1960s.

This was once a busy corn mill, in operation from the early 1800s and closing in the 1960s.
For generations local farmers brought sacks of oats here to be milled into oatmeal.

For over a 100 years the mill was operated by just 3 families. The original owners, the Atkinsons, were followed by Robert McCormick and then 3 generations of the Hamilton family.

The beautifully restored mill features a multi-media exhibition where you can experience Mourne life of the past, meet the miller and follow the progress of the oats through the milling process. You can also learn all about the famous stonemen of Mourne and the schooners that left the harbour carrying prized Mourne granite to help build the industrial cities of Britain
