This year is Hessle Whiting Mill's very first participation in Heritage Open Days. Having undergone extensive restoration and conservation work, this rare example of an industrial whiting windmill opened to the public in May this year as part of the Humber Bridge County Park's Chalk Walk heritage trail.
On our guided tours you will have the opportunity to rxplore inside the mills tower on 5 levels and see the crushing gear which ground chalk from the quarry, which now forms the Humber Bridge Country Park. Through displays you can learn about how the mill worked, how whiting was made, and who made it. Furthermore visitors can 'meet' the mills victorian owner and the edwardian wife of a quarryman through theaudio-visual presentation in the top of the tower.
Our project officer and volunteer team will be onsite to welcome you and answer all of your questions.
Opening Times: Saturday 11 September, Sunday 12 September, Saturday 18 September & Sunday 19 September
Opening Hours: 10am - 4pm each day
Public toilets and car parking are available next to the mill. Unfortunately there is no disabled access beyond the ground floor of the mill.
