There was a fantastic attendance at this year’s threshing weekend held at Heckington Mill.
The annual event drew over 800 visitors to the windmill site, who were able to enjoy a variety of activities and stalls run by local traders.
Many spilled over to visit the neighbouring Railway Station Museum too and saw the wider village benefit.
Displays and exhibits of stationary engines and farm machinery included the working steam powered threshing machine which threshed corn for the mill for the coming year.
New this year was a baling machine set up at the rear turning the wheat stalks into straw bales.
A baking demonstration was held in the newly refurbished bakehouse and it was the last busy weekend for the Miller’s House tea rooms before closure for the winter for its refurbishment. The bakehouse will serve as a temporary tea room over the winter.
Building work to convert the granary, cart shed and garage into a visitor centre and toilets has started on site and is due for completion in spring of 2017.
Visitors are still welcome to go along and see the work that is taking place.
