Saving Our Historic Warehouses
Heaps Rice Mill is just one of a large number of Historic Warehouses which MCS has campaigned to save.
Back in 2014 we were involved in the successful campaign to list the Mill.
Heap’s Rice Mill is not only one of the earliest, but one of the last surviving warehouse complexes in this area, serving as an important physical reminder of the area’s rich trading links and mercantile history.”
Despite this listing Heaps is still in a derelict condition with a recent chequered ownership history. However it is hoped that work on its renovation for residential purposes will finally get underway in 2021
In 2019 MCS hosted an event in the Baltic Quarter which focused on saving and re-purposing our historic warehouses.
