Wincolmlee, Hull
Wincolmlee, Hull
Looking northwest from the northern end of York Street. Most of the warehouses and mill buildings on Wincolmlee were originally 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 on the east side back straight onto wharfs on the River Hull. The area was heavily bombed during World War Two and the battered buildings have had a variety of uses ever since. The former Boothferry Reclaimed Pine warehouse at No.388 on the right 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 and is now partly bricked up, with the end nearest the camera used for storage by the Mould-It plastics company.
