East Kirkby Mill
East Kirkby Mill
Said to have been the best mill tower in the county, construction began for William Thimbleby in 1820 by the millwright Sam Ward. Unfortunately he became bankrupt during the course of the work and it was finished by Oxley of Alford, to his usual high standard. It worked by wind until 1927 when the sails were taken off. It drove two pairs of French and two pairs of grey stones, originally with four patent sails, but after 1837 with five. After the removal of the sails work continued into the 1950's with an engine-driven hurst on the ground floor.
