HECKINGTONHALE ROADTF 1443-1543(west side)11/57Heckington Mill

HECKINGTON HALE ROAD TF 1443-1543 (west side) 11/57 Heckington Mill 23/11/51 G.V. I Tower mill. 1830, repaired 1890. Designed by Michael Ingeldew. Red brick bitumen painted tapering mill tower, dogtooth eaves course, ogee wooden cap with ball finial. 5 storeys. To ground floor are planked double doors covered by a corrugated iron roof and approached up 6 shallow steps. Above the door a datestone inscribed MH for Michael Hare, the builder, with the date 1830. Above are single 2 light sliding plain sashes to each floor, all with segmental brick heads. Between the first and second floors is a planked platform supported on cast iron brackets and with a handrail. The mill retains the 8 sails brought in 1892 by Mr. Pocklington, then owner of the mill, from Tuxford's Mill at Boston following damage in a storm in March 1890. Interior retains brakewheel, wallower and the rest of the driving gear. The third and fourth floors are both bin floors and on second floor are the original 3 pairs of stones, with further single pairs on the first and ground floors. The substantial power generated by the 8 sails enabled the mill to drive 5 pairs of stones as well as ancillary machines such as a corn dressed, sack hoist and feed mixer as well as an adjacent woodworking shop. This is the only 8 sailed windmill extant in England. Source: Dolman.
