Long Description:
LeTall's Mill
Princess Street, Lincoln

Built by the Horton family, a five sail mill with four pairs of stones, three French and one grey. It was acquired by Henry LeTall in 1871 when it is said to have had six sails, although another source suggests that the sails were taken off in 1860, steam being the motive power after this. Millstones were used at the mill, which grew in size extensively, unti1 1888, when roller flour mills were put in by Joseph Thornton, millwright of Retford.
The mill tower was then gutted and converted into a silo and water tower. Later it was converted to provide a number of flats.

The mill tower, which at 77 feet 6 inches high to the curb (which still remains), is the second highest in the county. There are, or rather were, nine floors, with an iron reefing stage (which remains) at fifth floor level. The internal diameter at ground floor level is 28 feet 10 inches and at the curb is 11 feet.
