The development of Queen's Mill in Castleford has taken a further step forward with the presentation of the Historical Document to Castleford Heritage Trust. The Document contains a detailed history of the Mill from the original construction right up to the present day.
Yvette Cooper MP, attending the presentation ceremony with members of Castleford Heritage Trust, said:
“The members of Castleford Heritage Trust have done an extraordinary thing for the people of the town; they've rescued the Mill that could have been demolished or just left to decay, and they’re transforming it into a great community space that everyone can enjoy and that celebrates our history and looks forward to the future as well.
“So it was a real privilege to receive a copy of the historical document alongside members. It details the proud history of the Mill and flour making in Castleford, and I hope it will be a central piece of the exhibition once everything is up and running. ”
