Mill Farm, Soham
Northfield Windmill, also known as Townsend or The Shade Windmill, is situated at the north end of Soham. It was converted and moved to its present location in 1830 and is one of the smallest mills in Cambridgeshire. Originally it had four sails but for many years it was still working with only two sails. By 1964 the windmill had stood derelict for many years and in September of that year, one of the two remaining sails was blown off. In 1968 the remaining sail was removed. It has now been restored to its former glory, as a private project, by Mr Patrick Johnson and his family.
