SP7420 : Quainton Windmill

Quainton Windmill
Quainton Windmill
Looking north from Church Street at the top of The Green in Quainton, the top of Quainton Windmill can be seen behind a cottage. The tower windmill, built in 1832, is the highest in Buckinghamshire at 75ft 8in, which was made necessary apparently by the strange requirement that it was built in the lee of Quainton Hill. The top of the hill at 148m is 300m beyond the windmill. The mill was abandoned in 1881, but ongoing restoration work since 1970 by volunteers has restored the mill to working order.
