Lincolnshire Mills.

Lincolnshire had a lot of mills in the past for grinding corn but most have fallen into decline. 
However, some have been preserved and are open to the public, here are three nice examples.

The water mill at Tealby Thorpe.

This watermill dates back to 1790 and is on the River Rase
as it flows through the hamlet of Tealby Thorpe.  It's a Grade 2
listed building, not open to the public, it's part of a private residence.

Coggles Water Mill.

Coggles Mill is situated just to the north of Sleaford on the River Slea. 
It's a grade 2 listed mill, still working and open to the public.
Archaeological evidence shows there was a Saxon Mill on this site and one is
also listed in the Doomsday Book.

Heckington Wind Mill.

Heckington is located between Sleaford and Boston in Lincolnshire.

The Mill stands very close to the Heckington railway station and
was called "Station Mill" in the 19th century.

Heckington Windmill is the only 8 sailed tower windmill still standing in the United Kingdom
with it's sails still intact.

Heckington Windmill is a grade 1 listed building.
