Description
  • You can link several paths to create a route that suits you.  Two paths that you should use are those linking Nordam and Church Street.  Both are good examples of public rights of way that give access to attractive areas which you were probably unaware of.
  • The westerly path runs past the Upper Mill with its attractive millpond.  This has probably been a water mill since Domesday and only stopped milling in 1945.  The path to the east passes the Paper Mill, the youngest of the three mills on North Cave Beck.  Corn was ground here and coarse paper made in 1733 until 1823.  If you walk along the side of the beck from this mill, you can see the large lake at the far side of the road which always provided enough power to drive the mills.
