The wealth in Driffield in the nineteenth century grew considerably due to the completion of a ‘navigation’ canal which became the main import and export centre for local villages. This increased trade, population, commercial business and the construction industry and the financial success of many tradesmen was exemplified at the time through the significant number of villas being designed by innovative architects of that era.
In 1860 the site which Highfield now stands, was formally a Dutch-styled windmill which due to storm damage, was sold to Henry Angas; a grocer and draper who contracted architect Henry John Paull to design a new house named Mill Field Hill.
We love hearing stories on the rich and varied history of this remarkable home,
along with this we hold annual charitable events for a variety of personal and community causes.
