Argos Hill Windmill, Mayfield, Sussex - 30th March 2004

This mill was built between 1831 and 1834.  It is a post mill which worked commercially until 1923.

It is now owned by Wealden District Council but has fallen into a serious state of decay, and needs urgent attention to make it safe.

The tail pole is very rotten and in places is beyond repair.  The fantail is purely cosmetic.

Here is the mill silhouetted against a pure blue spring sky - pretty as a picture.

There is a picture of this windmill in much better condition in my antique postcard album.

I have been provided with information about various Sussex windmills from  Simon Potter who runs a brilliant site about Sussex Mills. 

More information on this and other wind and water mills may be found on the excellent  Windmill World site.

Check out my other windmill photographs in my Windmill Album.
