A view of the buck and two storey roundhouse. The sails were two common (with cloth draped over) and two spring (the main one photographed here but not a complete setup). The spring sails still required the miller to cease milling if adjustments were needed. The next stage was Cubitt's patent sails which prevented this.

Holton Postmill
Holton Postmill is a preserved landmark in the Suffolk village of Holton. Sited high up in a private garden it is accessible (externally) to visitors via a footpath on Mill Drive. The building was built in 1749 by I. Swan and worked until 1900 before being gutted of machinery and turned into a summerhouse. Later being repaired by the council it is currently under lease (until 2016). Open days are held in May and August every year.
