Skilled/unskilled helpers sought to assist with self-sustaining conversion of an 17th century cornmill. Jobs will include excavation of wheelpit, restoration of oak roof structure, reslating, lime-based masonry & internal rendering; and civil works for a hydro turbine. Stunning riverside setting by Ullswater in the English Lake district. Provisioned camping available with indoor camp-kitchen and composting toilet. No shower facilities at present, so camping best from May to October (the mill is at 1000ft/300m). We are looking for independent individuals/couples happy to commit to four six-hour days' work per week (weather dependent!), with the remainder free to explore. The mill is 5 miles from our home so helpers will need to be self-contained, resourceful and happy living off-grid in a remote location. The local pub (500m away) has free wifi, but there is no phone signal or internet access on site. Nearest shops are in Glenridding (3.5 miles). Bikes and extra camping gear available; reasonable bus service from village during summer months. Please contact us for further details.
