Howsham Mill is an 18th Century watermill in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near Malton. It was designed by John Carr of York as an architecturally unique Gothic-style garden folly. It has more recently been restored as an education centre and as a generator of renewable water-powered energy. We will meet outside the Children’s Play area on Intake Lane at 10.00am for a cycle ride to Howsham Mill led by John Eastwood. Alternatively, directions for travel by car for visiting Howsham Mill, which is 9 miles north-east of York and 3 miles from the A64, can be found on http://www.howshammill.org.uk/visit.
We will aim to meet together at the Howsham Mill car park at 11.30am for a guided tour of the Mill. Please bring a packed lunch. We hope to call in at the Balloon Tree cafe at Gate Helmsley for tea on our return journey back to Dunnington.
