TQ2349 : Windmill weather vane

taken 7 years ago, near to Buckland, Surrey, Great Britain

Windmill weather vane
Windmill weather vane
Weather vane on roof of Heathfield Lodge (see TQ2349 : Heathfield Lodge). I had originally assumed that the vane was intended to represent nearby Reigate Heath Windmill (see TQ2350 : Reigate Heath Windmill aka The Mill Church), but I was subsequently contacted by a former resident of the lodge to say that she had had it made in 1992 by a Sussex blacksmith to commemorate her husband's 50th birthday and the fact that it could represent the windmill on Reigate Heath was purely accidental.
