Thrum Mill


Thrum Mill is a hamlet on the north banks of the River Coquet, just west of Rothbury. The water mill here dates from the 18th century, probably on the site of an earlier mill. There are also cottages here, built for the mill workers, and Thrum Mill Farm. The footpath in front of the Thrum Mill was once the main road into Rothbury. The Trum is a steep sided gorge, with a narrow channel worn through the rocks by the river, a little downstream of the mill. In 1880 some of the rocks here were blasted away after Jamie Mackay lost his life trying to jump the Thrum. Thrum Mill was the subject of George Clarke’s "Restoration Man" in January 2013. After laying abandoned for about 50 years, the mill was restored by couple Dave and Margaret, with the water wheel reinstalled and turning once again in 2014. The mill is a Grade II listed building.
