PETROCKSTOWE SS 41 SE 4/49 Windmill at SS 491103 - - II Windmill now derelict and roofless. C18, according to sources. there was a date stone of "F.B.1756" but no sign of this was visible when the inspection was made (1987). Squared stone rubble tapering walls. Roofless circular plan with evidence of 2 doorways although only the north-east one is definately original. This has a neavy wooden lintel on the inside and the stonework on the outside suggests that the doorway was originally arcned. Walls extend to approximately 20 - 25-feet high and there are 2 window openings fairly high up. The mill was formerly used for pumping water to Heanton Satchville (q.v.) in the adjoining parish of Huish for which a pipeline still exists. Sources: Windmills of Devon - W Minchinton (1977)
