In 2019 the Maud Foster Mill in Boston, Lincolnshire celebrates its 200th anniversary.

Built in 1819 for the Reckitt Brothers by Norman and Smithson of Hull this magnificent windmill is recognised as one of the UK’s finest and rarest; it still earns its keep on a daily basis, making flour for bakers and shops and is privately owned by the Waterfield family.

A special day is being held on Saturday 8th June 2019 from 10am to 4pm. As well as the windmill being open to visit, there will be displays of steam engines and other machinery made in Boston by Tuxford and Company. The ladies from Dogdyke Steam Pump nearby will be offering their wonderful homemade cakes and tea may be enjoyed in the windmill's gardens.
