GV II

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.
