Haven Mill Partington 1810

Haven Mill was built in 1810 and located just outside of the village of Partington in the Diocese of York

This was one of many mills built in the 1800s within East Yorkshire and was used daily in the 1900s.

In 1928 the mill was looking a bit worse for wear, so it was decided to

Remove the last two sails and run the mill with an Oil engine you can see

The shed which was built to house it is on the left 

One of the last photos taken of the mill was in 1936 by that time

The oil engine had been removed, and years of the top part of the mill

Being open to the weather had taken its toll so the top 3 floors were

Reduced to just as it is today ground floor and 1st floor and new roof

Capped and sealed.

How it started (Demolition )
