Newham Heritage Month
House Mill is delighted to take part in the Newham Heritage Month, which began on Monday 1st June.
There is a wide and varied range of activities all now taking place online, and we recommend that our visitors also take a look at what else is going on this month in the Borough.
House Mill features from Sunday 7th June, with a few short films which have been made under lockdown. We hope you will enjoy these; each of them offering a different insight into House Mill; from the 1970’s when it was saved from demolition, through to some of the current plans for future restoration and additional uses, and taking in areas which are not currently accessible to visitors; including under the building itself! https://www.newhamheritagemonth.org/ Newham Heritage Month Schedule
Our thanks to Rosie Murdoch the Programme Manager for ensuring that this heritage month went ahead within the pandemic; albeit in June, and on-line, and to Karen LeRoy Harris and to Emma Crouch for their invaluable assistance with the House Mill films. Sponsors, including The National Lottery Heritage Fund and The Royal Docks
With full social distancing in place the Café now opens 11am – 4pm every Sunday, for a takeaway service of delicious foods and drinks.
We hope that it will be possible to open House Mill again later this year for guided tours; to re-open the art gallery and offer at least part of our previously planned programme of events.
