Wray Common and Wray Common Windmill
Wray Common and Wray Common Windmill
Wray Common Windmill is a tower mill originally built in 1824 - although not on an obvious hill when viewed from nearby, it is in fact quite prominent when viewed from the east, being clearly visible from the M23 around 3 miles away. It stopped working in 1895. It was first converted to a dwelling in 1966/7, but its condition subsequently deteriorated. A new renovation was carried out from 2004 - 2006, winning an award as "best conversion" in the Daily Telegraph Homebuilding and Renovating Awards 2006. The sails are dummies, added as part of the recent renovation - prior to that the mill was sailless for many years, as can be seen from other pictures of it in this square.
