The mill "with nowt taken out"
The mill "with nowt taken out"
This was formerly known as Allinson's Mill but is now called Queen's Mill as the right to the Allinson's name was transferred to the company's current owners. This is claimed to be the world's largest stoneground flour mill with 20 sets of stones that were latterly electrically driven. A water wheel was in use until 1970 and is to be restored by Castleford Heritage Trust. This was on the occasion of a public open day and my group had a guided tour that was most interesting. Photographic and other special interest clubs can pay to have the deluxe tour.
