40/502 Windmill at NGR
(8372 2907)


Tower of smock-mill. Circa early mid C19. Perforated yellow brick in English
bond, moulded stone cornice and red brick blockings to window, interior lined in
red brick. Squat winter tower with slight batter and large moulded cornice on
top. Pointed arch windows blocked in red brick. Doorway on north side with
depressed 2-centred arch. Blocked doorway on south east side. Superstructure
has been dismantled. Externally many of the brick faces have been eroded
exposing the perforations. Interior: Machinery taken out. Champered soft wood
post and beams with run-out stops. Half of first floor and all of second floor
removed, except for the beams. Narrow blocked segmental arch doorway on south
east side. Note: Said to be the only known smock-mill in Leicestershire and
Rutland. A windmill on this site is depicted on 1806 map. Probably in use
until 1916 when the wooden superstructure was removed or destroyed. Source:
