Post Mills
There are three main types of windmills found within Great Britain. Post mills, smock mills and tower mills.

The post mill is of a timber framed construction with weather-boarded sloping external walls. It was manually positioned by hand to face the wind, unlike the smock and tower mills which had pivoting top with a tail fan.
