Sneaths Mill, Lutton Gowts, Lutton - South Holland

Octagonal brick tower windmill, 1779, incorporating the remains of an earlier C18 mill. Unique in Lincolnshire and the oldest surviving tower mill in the county. Ceased to work in the 1930s and emergency repairs carried out in 1992. Historic England has helped to fund both urgent repairs to make the building weathertight in 2011, and a comprehensive assessment of the timber machinery, completed in 2018. An application to the Heritage Lotttery Fund Resilient Heritage scheme is anticipated this year. Planning permission has been obtained to convert the outbuildings and piggery.
