Swannington Heritage Trust

The Trust maintains former mining and railway sites a mill and 10 acres of woodland. Making the sites and historical information available to everyone and they are keen to work with village people and organisations for the benefit of all.

The mill finally ceased operation in the early 20th century and then progressively fell into disrepair. It is said that some of its ironwork was removed in 1940 for the war effort and by the time the Trust purchased the site in 1994 all that remained of the listed building was a very badly weathered shell of the tower, with a few rotting floor beams and the last residues of the cap frame.
