Riccarton Mill before the business transferred to Addington

Circa 1890

Wood Bros Millng relocated to Addington in 1891 because of the need to expand the business, such was the demand for the roller flour produced. For the next five years Wood Brothers operated both mills. In 1896 the Riccarton Mill, in what later became Wood Lane, off Fendalton Road, was sold to Richard Allen (1860?-1930) who operated it under the name Riccarton Roller Mills, producing Snowball flour.
