CELEBRATIONS were held at Millhouses Corn Mill on Tuesday after the announcement of a £50,000 grant to start restoring the buildings.

Lord Mayor Sylvia Dunkley and artist Joe Scarborough joined members of the Friends of Millhouses Park and other residents at the complex, at the junction of Abbeydale Road South and Archer Road, which is almost 1,000 years old and was originally linked to Beauchief Abbey. Now the Friends, Carterknowle and Millhouses Community Group and the council, which owns the buildings, are working together with a view to seeing community use on the site.

The Heritage Lottery Fund cash allows restoration to start in the autumn, while bids are being made to other sources to improve the interior.
