Marsh Mill :: Shared Description

Marsh Mill is an 18th-century tower windmill in Thornton. Built in 1794 by Ralph Slater for local landowner Bold Hesketh, it functioned as a corn mill until the 1920s and has since been fully restored. Although the sails do not turn at present, there is much original machinery. It is a good example of a complete English windmill and has been designated a Grade II* listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 184793 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings). Standing at over seventy feet in height, Marsh Mill is the tallest in Europe (LinkExternal link ).
