Sitting on the banks of the River Aire, Queen's Mill (formerly known as Allinson's Mill) is the world's largest stone grinding flour mill, with twenty pairs of stones.
According to the West Yorkshire Archaeological Society there has been a working mill by the river Aire as far back as Roman times, and it can be stated with some confidence that flour has been produced on the site of Queen's Mill for an almost unbroken period of more than 900 years. During medieval times the mills were used mainly for milling wheat, just as the Queen's Mill continues to do to this day.
Now Queen's Mill is looked after by the Castleford Heritage Trust. Visitors are invited to explore the mill during special open days throughout the year where members from the trust will be on hand to share the history of the mill and answer any questions.
