Windmill

Grade II* listed tower mill built around 1820 for local miller Oliver Carter. For around 100 years the mill ground flour for local farmers and villagers. Flour production ceased during the First World War, and the mill was then used to grind cereals and pulses for animal feed. It then fell into disrepair before a major restoration programme that saw the mill reopen in 2014.
