The Heritage Lottery Fund has given a grant of £19,500 to the Renewable Heritage Trust towards the redevelopment of Howsham Mill.

The 18th-century grade II listed watermill is located near Malton, North Yorkshire.

The charity plans to restore the building so it can be used as an education and community centre.

The Howsham Mill Project, which was a finalist on the 2006 BBC2 series Restoration Village, is another step closer to realising its goal of rescuing the gothic watermill for use as an education and community centre.

Since 2004, registered charity the Renewable Heritage Trust has been working to restore the ruined building and reinstate the waterwheel together with an Archimedean screw turbine to harness the power of the river.
