Lion Wharf Mills, Wincolmlee
Lion Wharf Mills, Wincolmlee
Warehouses and former mill buildings at 338-400 Wincolmlee, Hull, looking east-southeast across the northern end of Oxford Street. Most of the mills on Wincolmlee were built by the seed crushing industry who extracted vegetable oils from rape, linseed, cottonseed and soya beans for use in the manufacture of paint, soap, linoleum, margarine, cooking oil, animal cake and fertilizer. The buildings back straight on to the west bank of the River Hull. The area was heavily bombed during World War Two and the battered buildings have had a variety of uses since then. The former Boothferry Reclaimed Pine warehouse at No.388 (right of centre) was being used as an illegal drugs factory in June 2007, when a police raid on the property recovered cannabis plants with an estimated street value of over 1 million. The building was damaged by an arson attack in August 2008.
