Alford Windmill
Alford Windmill
This five-sailed windmill has been restored, and grinds organic flour. It is open as a tourist attraction. The last commercial operators of the windmill were the Hoyles family. Purchased by Harry Hoyles, a local farmer and land owner, in the early 20th Century, the business of milling and baking continued until the mid 1950's, run by his sons Walter, Arthur and Winston (The Miller). The business closed due to advancements in technology and the mill was initially sold to a private buyer, but was eventually bought by the Lincolnshire County Council. (In part from Wikipedia)
