The Mills

Several mills are known to have existed in Stokesley, the first recorded being mentioned in Domesday Book. However, one of the most interesting, and still standing to the south of the River Leven, is the nineteenth century Stokesley Flax Mill which was set up by the Mease family and is the subject of one of the initial 3 leaflets published by the Heritage Group.
