We spotted this derelict windmill from the road and I used the telephoto lens to obtain this rather gloomy picture - it was wet and misty too!
A fire in 1885 destroyed the sails and machinery of the windmill which was never repaired - this is all the information I have been able to glean about this imposing ruin.
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.
