Six Mile House drainage mill
Six Mile House drainage mill
Of all the windmills in the area, Six Mile House drainage mill is probably the least well preserved. The grade II listed derelict windpump was built in the mid-19th century. It has a tarred brick tower, leaning to one side, consisting of 3 storeys. Tufts of grass are sprouting on the brick tower wall. There are opposing openings for ground floor entrance doors and a window opening each on the first floor and cap floor. Much of the original machinery is still inside the structure which is open to the weather, with a leaking cover and gaps in the top floor. Two stocks and the sails lie rotting on the same spot they landed in when they fell down, apparently many years ago. Some of the internal machinery is still connected with wooden starts to the remains of an external scoop wheel, only the metal wheel parts have survived.
