Heatherslaw Mill is a water mill on the River Till in the north of Northumberland. It stands within the Ford and Etal Estate, seven miles north of the town of Wooler, within the green dale of the Till, beneath the looming fells of the Cheviots.

This is a restored 19th century water driven corn mill. Traditional methods and original machinery powered by the River Till are used to grind locally grown wheat into wholemeal flour. Its huge water wheel, mill stones and gearing are all visible. Freshly milled flour and local "Berwick Biscuits" are on sale in its gift shop whilst the mill cafe serves country fare.
