Annalong Cornmill, which was in operation from the early 1800s until the 1960s, was restored in 2014 to incorporate a new multi-media display. Three stories are told within the mill :

1. The Mill was used by local farmers who brought their sacks of oats to be milled into oatmeal. Learn about the processes involved in milling and about how this mighty water wheel provided power to this picturesque building.

2. The Harbour played a key role in the life of people from Annalong and the surrounding area, exporting precious Mourne Granite and importing coal for the kiln.

3. Mourne Granite is renowned for its quality. Learn more about life of a stone man and the skills that were required to work in this industry.

OPENING - Please note that this is a seasonal facility (April - September). Groups can be facilitated outside of the displayed opening hours. Please telephone to make arrangements.

The title says it all. I have made 9 trips to show friends the Corn Mill in Annalong. Every time we end up taking dozens of photos and spending much more time that we had planned. It is absolutely a lovely spot. Nearby restaurants provide good food and a place to rest after your visit to the harbor and mill.

After many visits to Annalong, this was the first time we found the corn mill open for visitors. Richard, our guide, was very informative and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the mill and found it very interesting and educational.

Grew up in this village but moved to Canada while young. Returned to visit family and vacation in July. Richard obviously loves his job and knows all about this mill and others in Northern Ireland. Watch your head when going through some of the smaller doors. That's why he wears the old Irish hat.

This is a beautifully restored mill and clearly a passion of the owner/guide. It wouldn't be too cheeky to suggest that County Down could sometimes do with a little less history! Here, the historical context, combining industry with local geography is really interesting and I found several of those 'Yes I never thought of that' moments.
