In 2012 we told the story of the Halifax bomber which crashed into Fitful Head in 1942 with the loss of all 7 crew.  The photos depicted here are of local men who were caain sheep on Fitful some days after the crash and sadly came across the remains of some of the airmen.  You can now read all the interesting information we have collated regarding the mission of Halifax R.9438 TL-H of 35 Squadron Linton-on-Ouse, when you come to visit us at the Mill.

Baptist Kirk Pulpit: Built in 1912 by local voluntary labour under the watchful eye of Rev. W. Fotheringham (Pastor of Dunrossness Baptist Church from 1901 – 1916).  During refurbishment of the Kirk the pulpit was rescued from certain destruction by a member of the South Mainland Community History Group who saw it as a valuable addition to  the varied collections and displays in the Mill.
