On the north bank of the Parish Haugh stands East Mill.
Though East Mill lies just off the A197 Whorral Bank, and is
within walking distance of Morpethís town centre, its location
is as quiet and tranquil as any in rural Northumberland. The
site enjoys wonderful views over the river whilst the
surrounding mature trees and woodland ensures East Mill remains
part of a calmer and more peaceful world.
In the recent past Northumbrian market towns have been named as
the best places in which to live not once but twice.
Northumberlandís small towns preserve much of the way of life
and sense of community many of us had thought had been lost
forever and Morpeth is no exception.
East Mill, with easy access to both the countryside and the
North Eastís towns and cities, is superbly situated to reach
everything the region has to offer. Whether you prefer to spend
your leisure time exploring dramatic landscapes, peppered with
romantic castles and ruined abbeys, or you favour urban
attractions such as the Baltic gallery, Sage concert hall and
MetroCentre mall, the ancient East Mill is the perfect place to
enjoy the best of modern life.
