Green Acres: tower

First brought to my attention via a photo on Geograph taken in Sept 2010. Google Earth historical imagery shows that foundations look to have been present in May 2006, with a hexagonal white skeleton framework constructed in 2007. The outer appearance is brick covered, with a shape reminiscent of Chesterton Windmill. The sails have been constructed using traditional millwrighting techniques, (with a rather unconventional varnished finish) though the poll end to the windshaft appears unconventional. Millwrights IJP performed the millwrighting work on the project.
