Oldland Windmill

Oldland Windmill


A white post mill, first known on a map dated 1703 and in operation until 1912. The mill has many unusual features including an octagonal brick roundhouse and a fine collection of cast iron machinery. Some of the machinery in the body was driven by an external steam engine. Restoration is complete and milling is regularly carried out, stone-ground flour being available for sale at the mill. ...
