Visit Annalong Cornmill in Down

Annalong cornmill was built in the early 1800s and operated until the 1960s, before closing it was one of the last working watermills in Northern Ireland. The building contains many of the original components and is open to the public to view the inner workings that benefited many farmers at the time. It has a grain drying kiln, three pairs of millstones and a 15ft waterwheel (a form of technology over 2000 years old) and a 1920’2 Marshall “hot-bulb” 20hp engine power it.

What are the prices of admission?

For adults, the price is only £2.50, for children the price is £1.50. However, for a family, you can save money by getting a family ticket for £6.00.

The water is channelled from the nearby Annalong River onto the water wheel attached onto the side of the building. Annalong Corn Mill was acquired by Newry and Mourne District Council in the early 1980s and was restored and reopened in 1983. Since then it has provided the basis for many a history lesson for visiting school children.
