- II

Windmill tower, now part of house. Early C19 with alterations of 1982-4.

Brown brick with traces of tarring. Fibre-glass covered cap. Tapered round tower of 4 storeys. Unsympathetic inserted full-height windows in original segmental-headed ground-floor openings; C20 casements in original segmental-headed windows to upper floors. Dentilled cornice. Dummy ogee cap with breast beam, shaft and skylight. C20 addition to east is not of special interest. The mill was wind-driven until the early '30s, and finally ceased operating c1960. Some gear was removed in 1980 for reuse, including the iron bridgetree now at Bardwell Mill, Suffolk. P Dolman, Lincolnshire Windmills, a Contemporary Survey, 1986, pp 12, 37.
