The Office of Public Works and Irish and international helpers restored the mills and millrace in 1989.Corn and flax milling were important parts of the agricultual economy of Ulster before they were superceded by modern industries. Visitors can witness the drying process, the mechanised process of milling and the operation of the original machines driven by hydro power.
