windmills Tallest and smallest windmills

I've updated my page on The Tallest Windmill, with some research provided by Michael Roots. By his calculation, Bixley windmill, of which a 7 storey stump remains, at its full height of 11 storeys would have been 127 feet to the curb.

At the other end of the size scale, I've just found a (representation of a) windmill that's just 70-microns high - thats a image that appears on a memory chip from Musical Semiconductors. There are 1000 microns to a millimetre, so the UK's tallest windmill was about 500,000 times as tall as this image. Mills: [Bixley]
