From the Cultural Heritage Inventory:
SITE NAME LOBINROE WINDMILL
GRID REF.: M872 524 OS DISCOVERY MAP SERIES NO.: 40
Lobinroe Windmill was built about 1750 and is located in the townland of Correal, near Mount Talbot.
It is a three stage structure with battered, or sloping, walls of random coursed rubble stone. The ruin was consolidated c.1990
and made accessible to the public by the local community group. A panoramic view of 360deg of the South Roscommon landscape is
possible from the site at a vantage point of 430 feet above sea level. The building is unroofed, squat in appearance and has one
entrance door. Lobinroe Windmill is recorded on the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage.
Located alongside a third class road approximately 3km to the north-east of Four Roads Village, access to the site is via
a kissing gate or tubular field gate and along an overgrown gravelled track for approximately 50 metres.
Wheelchair access is not possible due to the rough terrain and overgrown nature of the entrance trackway.
The site is signposted from Lacken cross roads.
A modern wall stone carries the inscription "Lobinroe 18th Century Windmill". A stone in the door reveal is inscribed "Sep 1818 IN".
PARKING AND FACILITIES
A roadside lay-by provides parking for approximately seven cars.
