Isis Oil Mill silo


Oil mill silo. 1912. By Gelder & Kitchen of Hull. For Wray,
Sanderson & Co. Reinforced concrete structure with brick
cladding and concrete and faience dressings. Steel framed roof
with glazed clerestory and ventilators, behind parapet.
Square tower, 4 stages, 6x6 bays, with shallow buttresses
rising the full height. Corner buttresses topped with
pedimented niches and domes. On one corner, a square brick
pedestal carrying the water tank. The top stage has 6 windows
on 3 sides, and the name of the mill worked in white tile on
the other. The interior is divided into square storage bins
with concrete floors on cast-iron columns. This is the
earliest surviving oil mill silo in Hull, and marks a radical
change in buildings associated with the oilseed industry.
