Classic Bikes revisit Heage Mill

by Amber Valley Info on Wednesday 12 September 2018

On Sunday September 9th well over 300 classic motor bikes made Heage Windmill their destination.  The weather was very kind with enough wind to turn the sails! About 500 visitors came specially to see these lovely, often gleaming, machines and talk to their owners. Many were able to tour the windmill and once again 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 Colin Clemens and Les Cross to be a Triumph Trident T160, 1976 and the proud owner is Bill Myles who was presented with a certificate and the recently 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 was the ever popular Bric-a-Brac on site plus 2 tombolas – one for adults and one for children. Also, refreshments were in high demand both from the Burger Van and from the Visitor Centre. Many thanks to Alex for providing her Burger van. 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 and we thank everyone for their support.

Amber Valley Classic Car Club are dropping into the Mill on Saturday 16th September – this will not be a big event and will be weather dependent.+

Then on Sunday September 23rd at Heage Windmill there will be the 2nd visit from the vintage tractors – normally a big event.

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!
