Lego League Competition

We are proud to announce that we signed up to take part in the first Lego League (FLL) competition in the UK.

FLL is a global science and technology competition with over 250,000 young people taking part each year which is aimed at young people aged nine to 16 years, working in teams of up to 10 to complete a programming robot challenge and missions.

It helps to see the discovery, excitement and fun in science and technology. Started by Dean Kamen and Kjeld Kirk Kristianson in 1998, it has since grown enormously and now takes place in 70 countries around the world.
As part of the 2014 World Class Challenge, we had to redesign how we gather knowledge and skills in the 21st century. We called our team BA Builders and offered the judges a solution on ‘How to learn about binary’.

Moulton Mill Restoration Image

Moulton Mill Restoration

At a more peaceful pace than our usual food industry projects, we were tasked by the Friends of Moulton Mill to design & manufacture a replacement gear set to enable the Ogee cap of the mill to be rotated by hand. 


Having spent time at the mill to understand the project fully (and to climb up and down the numerous flights of stairs in the tallest mill in the country), we set to work on a hand operated gearbox with a geared ratio that would make rotating the cap a considerably easier task than it had been in previous generations. 


After much heavy lifting, this project was completed in November 2013 and will be utilized to turn the cap in times of high winds, or when the mill needs to be maintained. 


Winyard Engineering Ltd are proud to be associated with the ongoing restoration of Moulton Mill and wish the Friends of Moulton Mill every success in their ongoing efforts.

Moulton Windmill in the Lincolnshire village of Moulton, between Spalding and Holbeach is a restored windmill claimed to be the tallest tower mill in the United Kingdom. The nine-storeyed mill is 80 ft to the curb and 100 ft to top of the ogee cap.
