Dilston Paper Mill (Corbridge)

Dilston Paper Mill operated in the 19th century and must have gone out of use by the 1890s when it was described as a ruin. All that remains today are traces of a leat and a stone-arched outfall on the bend of the Devil's Water. Three sides of a stone-lined pit may be the remains of a drying shed.
