Heage - Classic Bikes storm the windmill

by Amber Valley Info on Tuesday 15 May 2018



At what is now a bi-annual event, well over 300 classic motor bikes made Heage Windmill their destination on Sunday 13th May. The weather was very kind and a lot of bright sunshine shone down on the event, with just enough wind to gently turn the sails! Over 600 visitors came specially to see and touch these lovely, often gleaming, machines and then many were able to tour the windmill and once again to obtain flour, stone milled by the wind, at Heage.



The bikes were of all types, ranging from tourers to out and out racers, and included many well-known makes, such as BSA, Honda, Royal Enfield but notable were some beautiful Vincents, Harley Davidsons and an MV Augusta.


The best bike was judged by a mill ‘expert’ to be a BSA 1959 A10 and the proud owner was Mike Sears who was presented with a certificate and the newly launched ‘Dave Cleaver’ trophy, commemorating a man who had just loved bikes. This was presented by Colin Clemens, who organised the bikes on show.



There were a number of back up stalls, including a Tombola and a raffle, whilst refreshments were in high demand. All in all the day was a great success, with great feedback from everyone involved. All profits, of course, go into keeping the mill working and improving the available facilities.



The windmill will be open during 2018 (11-00am to 4-00pm) every weekend from


April 1st until the end of October. Large, free, car park!
