Ullesthorpe, Leicestershire

Featured Location Guide

Tower mill with no sails.

Ullesthorpe Mill, currently undergoing part restoration and built around 1800. Restoration started in 2005.

There appears to be good grounds for believing this can be fully restored eventually - Listed building register shows it as " Built by subscription 1800. Round red brick tower with batter and slight bell-cast. bitumined steel pepperpot cap, rounded with finial. Drive-shaft still in existence. Door on ground floor to south-east with one on first floor above and one on second floor to north-east, all boarded. Various leaded casements on different floors, all in segment-headed openings. Interior: machinery more or less intact, including shafting, wallower, spur wheel, grain nuts and shafts, bins and hoists."

Some restoration has taken place between 2005-2012, when the stairs were installed and windows re-glazed. The out buildings of stable, cart-house, privy, bakery and pigsties and grounds were all cleared and made accessible.

It is generally open twice a year, on the National Mills weekend in early May and usually on Heritage Sunday in September, - but do check before travelling.
