Skidby Windmill, Beverley road, Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU16 5TF
Free Admission 13th and 14th September: In the Museum of East Riding Rural Life there are two exhibition galleries: the Agriculture Gallery, which looks at the agricultural history of the East Riding, and the Village Life Gallery, which has displays on many aspects of rural village life. An events trailer from the Joining Up The Humber Project will be located in the mill courtyard - http://www.joiningupthehumber.co.uk/about-the-project. Both galleries contain many quotes from local people, which bring the displays to life. The second gallery also currently has a display of veterinary tools, and there is a display case containing changing exhibitions run by the volunteers. There are plenty of activities for children at Skidby Mill, which is a particularly family-friendly site. The activities range from hands-on interactives, to gallery trails, jigsaws and animal hunts, and an open space play area in the adjacent field. There are also Explorasacks that can be borrowed for a deposit to help you investigate the field and garden. More information can be found by going to the Children and Families page (http://www.museums.eastriding.gov.uk/skidby-mill/children-and-families/).
This event took place in September 2014 and the entry is now archived.
