The former flour mill located on East Station Road on the bank of the River Nene was one of three mills and warehouses which were constructed for the Earl Fitzwilliam between 1840 and 1850. It was used by Cadge and Colman from 1850. The company was acquired by the Wellingborough-based baking products manufacturer Whitworths in 1936. Grain was transported to the mill by barge until the mid-1960s. Cadge and Colman ceased trading in 1987 although Whitworths continued to use the site for storage purposes. The mill, which is designated as a building of historic interest, is viewed here from The Embankment.
The grains silos were demolished in December 2016. The mill itself is earmarked for conversion into an arts and cultural centre as part of a redevelopment of the Fletton Quays area of the city costing 120 million (GBP 120 million) and involving the construction of riverfront residential properties, offices and leisure facilities.
