Impington Windmill - looking up into the cap
Impington Windmill - looking up into the cap
Looking up into the apex of the ogee cap. The wallower is bottom centre and the brake wheel arcs round in the centre of the field. The hollow metal windshaft is prominent and the striking gear for the patent sails runs through its centre.

The mill is a 2-storey, hexagonal white smock mill on a 3-storey brick base, with ogee cap. Built in 1776 on the base of a 17th century post mill and raised on the tower around 1850, with patent sails added. Being restored by the owner; sails fitted and working, 2007; original machinery awaiting refurbishment. There are four patent sails and winding is by fantail.
