Bocking Post Mill, Bocking Churchstreet, Braintree
Dating from around 1721, the mill was moved to this site from further down the hill in 1829-30. It has a two storey brick roundhouse which contains much original equipment and was last working in 1912. The villagers prefer the sails to face south, which adds to the attractive view of the mill looking north from Braintree.
