Uffculme's historic Coldharbour Mill hosted a royal visit as part of an event for local charities.

The Duchess of Edinburgh visited the heritage site, which is one of the oldest mills in the UK, alongside representatives from more than 80 local charities.

The event was hosted by the Lord-Lieutenant of Devon, King Charles' personal representative for the county.

Charities representing a number of areas including health, wellbeing and arts met to discuss challenges in the sector. The Lord Lieutenant was keen to hear how his office could help the charities in attendance.

Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, spent time with staff and volunteers at the mill - which has been in production since 1797 - before leaving with knitted gifts made on the factory floor.

Martin Halse, Chief Executive of Coldharbour Mill Trust said “This event provided an excellent opportunity for charities across the region to discuss future collaboration opportunities. It was also an honour to be able to show Her Royal Highness the incredible work of our volunteers.”
