"Combined windmill/watermill and dwelling. 1802 by James Middleton of Hibaldstow, millwright. Top storey added to tower in 1837 for James Tenney, miller. Engine-house to north of 1912; C20 patching and repairs ...

The mill, with its accompanying range of contemporary outbuildings (qv) is one of very few examples of combined wind and water-mills in Britain. The highly-accomplished design is particularly notable, and probably unique"

Kelly's Directory 1930 notes:-

"The church of St. Hibald is an edifice of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel with vestry, nave of four bays, north aisle and south porch: the chancel was rebuilt about 1866 by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, when a sarcophagus, apparently of Saxon date, was found, containing the skeleton of a man of powerful frame, possibly St. Hibald himself:

the nave was rebuilt in 1876-7, under the direction of the late Mr. James Fowler, architect, of Louth, at a cost of about £1,550; the original tower fell in July, 1875, after the old nave had been taken down, but its arch has been rebuilt in the west wall of the present church:

the ancient font is octagonal :

the south porch was erected in 1898 at a cost of £70, and at the same time a new organ was provided by subscription, at a cost of £200, to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Victoria:

there are memorial windows to the Rev. John Thomas Grey M.A. vicar here 1874-1903, Mrs. Grey, and Bombardier Watmough, who fell in the Great War, 1914-18:

there are 200 sittings"

White's Directory 1872 has :-

"The Church is dedicated to St. Hibbald, who is said to have been buried here, and from whom the parish took its name, though some writers have supposed it had its name from Hubba, the Danish commander.

The church consists of a modern nave, and an ancient chancel and tower.

The chancel was restored a few years ago at the expense of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners.

The Bishop of Lincoln and M.D. Dalison, Esq., are patrons alternately of the vicarage, which is valued in K.B. at £7. 10s., and now at £424, in the incumbency of the Rev. F. J. Jeremie, M.A., who has a good vicarage house, built in 1851"
