Peninnis Mill: tower

A millstone and foundations exist at this location. The ruinious tower was photographed by Muggeridge in 1953, but was demolished about 1960.

There are many hand-mills for grinding upon emergency in all the islands; but a wind-mill, upon a tract called Peninnis, grinds the larger quantities. The miller seldom fails of constant visits and employ from his customers of both sexes. His diligence supplies the place of water-mills, of which there are none to hinder his increasing trade.
From A general collection of ... voyages and travels, digested by John. Pinkerton, 1808
