TL4459 : French's Mill

taken 10 years ago, near to Chesterton, Cambridgeshire, Great Britain

French's Mill
French's Mill
This smock mill, sadly devoid of sails, is hidden away in a small business park at the end of French's Road, unknown to most of the local residents.
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.
