This was built in 1819 and has had additions since including the windshaft added in 1832. The diary of Thomas King, a local carpenter, records that construction on the mill was started in 1819. He 'set to work on Christmas Day Dec.25 1819'. Restoration of the windmill to working order began in 1980. Find out more about windmills and watermills in our Teachers' Kit - Mills.
