Penny Hill windmill
Built in 1827 on the site of a smock mill, this red brick tower mill had four patent sails driving three pairs of stones. By the late 19th century it had been raised to six storeys with six patent sails driving four pairs of stones. It was in use for cereal milling until 1944. The top and sails were dismantled by German prisoners of war in 1945. By 1954 all the machinery had been removed. There are numerous buildings associated with the mill including these pictured here.
