Gayle Mill in Hawes, North Yorkshire is a grade 2 listed saw mill dating back to the 18 century. The mill has now been restored and is open to the public and is a key visitor attraction in the Yorkshire Dales.
The Friends of Gayle Mill is a volunteer organisation. The objective of this society is to advance the promotion, appreciation, support and improvement of Gayle Mill through the activity of a group of Friends
To date the Friends have organised many fund raising events and social events since formation in 2003. This has funded new equipment for wood cutting, a wood drying kiln, restoration of a three legged crane and rack saw bench at the mill.
As a joint venture with Gayle Mill Trust the Friends funded the research and re-writing of the Gayle Mill Story, to provide an accurate account of the history of the mill.
