|Establishment Name:||Mullan Village|
There are a number of interesting heritage features within the village, which include a mill-race (reputedly the longest in the country at 1km), a curved stone bench and a working water pump. The original structure of the village included the White Row, the Red Row, the Felt and the Dance Hall, a shop and school as well as the mill. A village competition was held every year for best garden, best vegetables and a field was kept in an allotment style for use communally by all the residents.
Mullan’s border location contributed greatly to its decline over the last quarter of a century and the village suffered a gradual reduction of population with most of the mill houses falling into disrepair and abandonment by the 1990s. Works are now underway to restore the mill houses and revive the village as a centre for the local community once more.
