windmills Buckland windmill news roundup

Much progress has been made during 2003 in the work to bring Buckland windmill, Surrey, to working order. A RES grant (Rural Enterprise Scheme) granted in April 2003 is going towards the phase 3 work, including electrical power to the mill, restoration of a saw bench and lathe for the mill to drive, and adjustments to get the sails and fantail working. The sails were in fact workable by July, but were catching on the mills windows, and the automatic fantail still needed work.

The mill's open day in September attracted over 200 visitors, and the mill has had publicity in Surrey Life, Surrey Mirror, Dorking Advertiser, and a 2 page article in the December 2003 issue of Surrey Monocle.
