Stocks Mill, Wittersham Isle of Oxney, Kent
Stocks Mill, Wittersham Isle of Oxney, Kent
The Isle of Oxney was once an island in medieval times, a high spot surrounded by sea and marsh. On top of the island is Stocks Mill, a post mill with a roundhouse of tarred brick under a sloping wooden felted roof. It is the tallest of the countyís remaining post mills. The centre post of the mill has the date 1781 and the initials RV carved on it - this is either the date of the millís construction or the date it was moved to Wittersham. (Information from Kent County Council who now own the mill.)
