windmills St Nicholas Abbey, St Peter for sale

It's rare that a pair of windmills comes up for sale, and to couple that with a substantial steam driven mill is rarer still. To surround all this with 400 acres of land, and a Jacobean great house gives a unique property - which if you haven't guessed is not in England, but in Barbados. St Nicholas Abbey is for sale for $7 million, and the mills in question were for sugar production. The details show a large mill wall, which would have been the cane crushing mill, and a smaller mill tower which would have been for water pumping. The steam-driven cane crushing engine was last used in 1947, but the estate still has half its land in sugar production.
