The latest exhibition by the Skidby Windmill Volunteer Team has opened this week. “Horses for Courses” looks at the sporting use of horses in the region, including the breeding of race horses by major local landowners such as Sir Tatton Sykes (1772-1863) of Sledmere House.
The display also covers the origins of important local racecourses, such as Beverley Racecourse and Hedon and looks at major races such as the Kiplingcotes Derby and the Holderness Point to Point. The display will run until 3 March 2015.
Skidby Windmill is open daily 10am to 5pm (last admissions 4.15pm). Modest admission charges apply. For further information, please call the mill reception on 01482 848405.
