Windmill. Circa 1720. Coursed squared sandstone, no roof visible. Slightly
tapered tower. Chamfered stone lintels and irregular-block jambs to north and
south doors with added date 1567 on lintel. Plain stone surrounds composed of
4 irregular slabs to small windows at different levels and on all 4 sides.
Renewed stone upper courses appear to be C20 and are straighter than the slightly
sloped lower part. All window and door openings blocked with sandstone rubble;
also blocked holes for beams at second floor level. Mound surrounds mill to
height of 5ft from ground level. Historical note: 1806 newspaper advertisement
for remainder of 99-year lease suggests 1720 date.
