Smock Mills
There are three main types of windmill in Great Britain: post mills, smock mills and tower mills.

The smock mill is of a timber-framed construction with weatherboarded, steeply sloping external walls. It was built on a brick base. A pivoting wooden top with sails moved independently of the main structure so that the sails could be positioned towards the wind. This was controlled by a tail fan.
