The Vale Mill Trust

The 18th Century Water Mill has been restored and renovated by the Vale Mill Trust, founded in May 1992.

The Trust's members come from a wide variety of backgrounds and their consistent support is much appreciated. We have in the last six years developed Standing Orders and Gift Aid payments to increase our income.

The trustees meet once a month to receive progress reports, discuss future developments and direction of the project.

The project has received support from Gateshead Council, local businesses and various. The building received recognition from the Civic Trust.

PATH HEAD WATER MILL is an 18th Century Water Mill situated in Blaydon-on-Tyne and is being restored by Vale Mill Trust (Registered Charity No 1011002).

Our Family Membership Scheme allows members (together with up to 5 relatives) to visit the Mill FREE during their membership year. Please contact us for details.

PATH HEAD WATER MILL is an ideal location for an educational trip or nature expedition.

Many local schools have expressed an interest in bringing the children for visits to show them how a Water Mill works and also for nature trails. Many aspects of the National Curriculum can be experienced in a real-life situation. We have on-site parking, a picnic area, disabled toilets and single level for pushchairs and wheelchairs. We also provide tea, coffee and juice at the Interpretation Centre which will also house some information about the history of the local area.
