Visit one of Britain’s tallest working windmills with five sails, which must face into the wind at all times in order to work. Climb up seven floors and see flour being made in the traditional way by wind-power. The brick tower is 64 feet tall and the highest point of the mill is 80 feet.

This fine English tower mill was built in 1819 for the brothers Thomas and Isaac Reckitt by the Hull millwrights Norman and Smithson for the sum of £1,826.
