8/538 Stevington Windmill 7.5.52 - II*

Post-mill dated 1770 on one of the crosstrees. Rebuilt 1921 and restored in 1951. Two-storey body, timber-framed with pitch pine weatherboarding. Gambrel corrugated iron roof. Four common sails (no longer covered). Internal machinery completely restored and in workable order. Roundhouse around base was probably added in C19, rubble with tile roof. This is the only complete windmill left in Bedfordshire and probably the last windmill in England to work with four common sails. (Beds C.C. - Stevington Windmill 1975).
