Originally built as a smock mill in 1726, this building has been placed on the English Heritage At Risk register following extensive damage to the structure caused by storms in 2001. The mill was raised on a brickwork base in 1860. This is not the first time storm damage has afflicted this mill, she was damaged and rebuilt back in 1889 as a tower mill.
The windshaft is cast iron, and until the storm damage the mill was in working order.
Two sweeps and the fantail were lost.
More information on this mill can be found here.
More information on this and other wind and water mills may be found on the excellent Windmill World site.
