Moulton Windmill, High Street, Moulton - South Holland

Tower mill and adjoining granary, built around 1822 by Robert King. Following a programme of restoration by a local charitable trust which commenced in 2003, it became the tallest working windmill in England. Unfortunately, extensive timber decay has been discovered in the fan tail and staging. Temporary supports are in place to prevent collapse and the fan has been removed. Historic England awarded a grant to assist with urgent repairs. Work to repair and replace decaying timbers commenced in late 2017 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
