Rank Hovis Mill, Trafford Wharf
Built in 1907, the Rank Hovis Mill is the only flour mill still operating in Trafford Park. In its heyday there were three mills handling wheat imported by sea, particularly from Canada and transported via the Manchester Ship Canal. Today the wheat is brought by road from Liverpool.
