Local History

Explore Heritage

Path Head and the immediate area is packed with fascinating history, and the mill is all about celebrating heritage.

When you visit the mill, pick up one of our self-guided leaflets or ask whether there’s a guided tour available.

You can read the story of the mill on our new sign and walk round to the door of the Workshop to read about the renovation.

We are keen to celebrate heritage crafts, and our new Brick Heritage Monument is a wonderful example.

To read about the Brickworks of the North East, you may wish to buy a copy of our new book.

We are currently developing our new forge, so make sure you have a look when you visit!


Working Together

Heritage volunteers at the mill work with Ryton & District Local History Society and Winlaton & District Local History Society.

Our first book, published under the imprint Path Head Press, is Brickworks of the North East.

A new edition of Addison, the Rise & Fall of a Pit Village was published by Ryton Local History Society, in association with Path Head Press.

Research is underway for a history of the mill and its immediate area – Stella, Summerhill & Blaydon Burn.
