G.V. I

Windmill. 1837, restored 1979, built by Alford millwright, Sam Oxley. Black bitumen painted brick, with 5 wooden sails and ogee cap. Tower mill of 6 floors tapering to moulded top. To ground floor are double doors and to all other floors are 2 light sliding sashes, in all 4 directions, with segmental heads. To the second floor is a timber balcony, the full circumference of the mill, with plain iron balustrade and double doors giving access to the balcony. On the right hand side is a small cast iron flywheel. On the opposite side to the sails is a fantail on a cantilevered framework. The interior preserves all floors, 4 pairs of stones, ironwork and gearing by Tuxfords of Boston, and it is all still in working order. This mill is the only one surviving of Alford's 4 tower mills. The fly wheel at the base of the mill connected by pulley to an engine in the adjacent shed which was driven by town gas when there was insufficient wind to operate the mill.
