This fine example of an 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 – 10s – 6d. Remarkably, the original contracts from the building of the mill still survive.
By the time the present owners, the Waterfield family, arrived on the scene in June 1987, the condition of the mill had deteriorated considerably, but their aim was to put Maud Foster Mill back into working order - and to use it. Extensive repairs were undertaken and finally the work was completed in 1988 when the opening ceremony was performed by Mr Basil Reckitt.
You can climb all 7 floors of the Mill to see flour being made in the traditional way. An onsite shop sells stoneground flour, porridge oats, local history books and a variety of good quality souvenirs.
If you would like to stay in a working windmill, part of the old granary attached to the windmill now provides comfortable holiday accommodation for up to 2 adults sharing.
The Windmill and Shop are open Wednesday and Saturday between 10am and 5pm and the Windmill will be working as long as there is sufficient wind. Entry to the shop is free and admission to the windmill:- Adults £4, Senior Citizens £3, Children £2, Family Ticket £10 (2 adults and 2 children) *Groups of 10 or more please enquire.
There is a free car park for visitors to the Mill.
