Mill, Hall & Deer Park
Fountains Mill is one of the oldest buildings on the estate and was in continuous use until 1927. Today you'll find an interactive exhibition and see objects discovered found when we restored the mill in 2001, including some very old graffiti.
Have a go at grinding some corn and see the water wheel in action as you explore.
In 1597 Stephen Proctor bought the Fountains Abbey estate and began the construction of Fountains Hall soon after. Since then several families have called the Hall their home including five generations of the Messengers.
The Vyner family were the last to reside in the Hall before it was sold to the West Riding County Council.
