West Blatchington Windmill at Dusk
West Blatchington Windmill at Dusk
Built in 1820 to serve the local farm it remained in use until 1897. It remained in private hands until Hove corporation purchased it from the Marquess of Abergavenny in 1937. They in turn maintained it as a landmark and it remained standing despite the construction of a housing estate around it from the 1930s onwards. Since 1979 it has been open to the public on Sundays and bank holidays between May and September. The mill itself is a smock mill that is six sided rather than the usual eight and was built on top of three barns of which only one original remains, the long south barn having burnt down in 1936. When the new housing estate was constructed Holmes Avenue, the road in view, was built to go round either side of the barns and mill.
