Groups & Schools
Groups are always welcome including schools, youth groups, special interest groups and others.
We can offer guided tours of the building to include trips up the mill tower to view the internal workings of the mill, talks on the history and baking demonstrations.
On the first floor of the mill house we can offer a group meeting and activity room.

8 Sail Facts
Only 7 mills were ever built with eight sails.
One each in Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk and 3 in Lincolnshire.
These were Market Rasen, Skirbeck (transferred to Heckington in 1892) and Holbeach. Of all these, only Heckington's 8 sail mill survives.
8 Sail Facts
Heckington mill has the widest base windmill tower in Lincolnshire.
At 8.5m diameter it has plenty of space on the ground floor for group visits.
