First view of the Mill
We first viewed Yore Mill in January 2021 after seeing the lease for sale on the Craft Shop.
I had taken redundancy from teaching, having been an Art Teacher since ’87, my partner found that due to Covid19 he was expected to work from home and figured, “Well, Home can be anywhere”
So, after looking at various businesses for sale he found the Craft Shop advertised, we immediately knew that this was The One.
Within a week a business plan had been drawn up and we arranged to view.
We travelled during Lockdown 1 to see a business that was being in effect wound down. Our minds were going into overdrive as we started to discuss the possibilities.
We planned to develop the shop into a gallery showcasing local artists and makers. By June 21 we were making those plans a reality.
