Allinsons Flour Mill, Castleford
This Mill, built in 1898 was formerly known as Queen's Mill. In 1921, the Allinson family ascquired the Mill, and expanded to make it the largest stone ground flour mill in the world. The River Aire powered the mill, which used French Burr stones to make wholemeal flour, until the 1970's. The mill ceased production and closed down in 2011. It is now for sale.
