Moulton Mill to help with heritage silver anniversary

Moulton Windmill is to be part of a silver anniversary celebration for recognising Lincolnshire's rich heritage.

The 19th century redbrick mill is to welcome Nottinghamshire artist Graham Elstone who has been commissioned to create a piece of work based on the theme, "Picturing the Past".

Once completed, the artwork will be shown publicly during the 25th anniversary of Lincolnshire's Heritage Open Days, due to take place in September.

Graham said: "It is going to be very interesting to create an artwork for this great heritage site.

"I am looking forward to working at, and with, Moulton Windmill and its groups, finding out about its past, present and future, as well as creating an interactive new technology artwork that reflects these values."

Heritage Open Days are part of a national initiative celebrating England's architecture and culture by giving visitors free access to sites that are not usually open to the public or which would normally charge a fee.

It also includes tours, events and activities that focus on the history of the area, with last year's event having attracted an estimated 24,500 visitors.

Sarah Grundy, of Lincolnshire County Council, said: "We are very excited to be working with artsNK and the chosen artists on this project.

"It is a great chance to involve communities in learning about and appreciating their local heritage sites in new and interesting ways through the arts.

"We are looking forward to working with as many people as possible, breaking down any barriers that they might have to enjoying heritage and the arts during this 25th anniversary year of Heritage Open Days."
