This smock mill was built in 1813 and continue in use until the 1930s.
Like many mills, this one became derelict after the milling ceased until 1971 when fortunately a temporary roof was installed to protect the mechanism. In 1987 a preservation group purchased the mill and following a long programme of work the mill is now fully operational again.
Here is a closer view of the fantail.
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.
