The Mill on the Fleet is a restored 18th century cotton mill. It is now an exhibition centre with core displays on the history and heritage of Gatehouse and the Fleet Valley.

It has an annual programme of temporary exhibitions in two galleries focusing on heritage and natural history, and contemporary arts and crafts.

The Mill also houses the Gatehouse Tourist Information Service, has a popular café for refreshments and light meals, a gift shop, and a bookshop specialising in new and secondhand books.

The popular Mill Sessions musical events are held here, as well as other events and concerts throughout the season. The Mill is in a beautiful setting on the banks of the River Fleet and in suitable weather diners can eat on the riverside terrace overlooking the river.

We visited this beautiful old mill in the summer of 2015. There is a lovely atmosphere, and you feel like you are stepping back in time. The museum is very interesting, with a history of Gatehouse of Fleet and the surrounding area, and we all really enjoyed the experience.

There is a bookshop at the top of the building with literally hundreds of second-hand and new books, where we spent over an hour browsing the shelves.

There is also a gallery at the top with paintings by local artists which were for sale, including many of local beauty spots.

We spent another hour in a lovely little cafe on the ground floor and sat outside watching the river and soaking up the peaceful atmosphere. The food was excellent and lots of home baking.

There is also a small shop selling touristy items like postcards and gifts.

We has a wonderful afternoon, and the Mill on the Fleet is highly recommended
