Seen on a June evening.

The mill stands quite high up on a ridge, overlooking the Chelmer valley (to the west) and the village (to the east and north). In my copy of the Essex volume of Pevsner ('The Buildings of England') the mill is described as having lost its sails. That was back in the 1950's - since which time the mill has been restored to working order (the sails being re-fitted in 1991). Since then there have been setbacks - earlier Geographs show the mill again without its sails earlier in the present century.
