Castleford Heritage Trust

Projects

The Trust has been involved in numerous successful projects within the town and the surrounding area.

Our aim is to transform Queen’s Mill into a high quality community facility providing a unique heritage and arts destination for local communities and visitors from across the region. Local heritage and culture will be used for educational and leisure purposes.   Under the theme of Made in Castleford, the building will provide heritage and arts spaces, skills training, cultural industries development initiatives, studio and workshop spaces and business, retail and catering opportunities.

The major features of the heritage attraction will be a working waterwheel generating power for the whole site, and the continuation of stone ground milling on a small scale, providing flour for sale and for a community bakery.

Some of these completed projects are showcased below.
