windmills Friston mill to get steel framework to allow work to stabilize mill

Friston post mill in Suffolk requires some fairly urgent work to make it stable, and to this end it is gaining a steel framework installed by DGT Steel and Cladding Ltd, to allow the buck to be jacked up, so enabling work on the timbers of the trestle and the bottom of the buck.

The work is a holding operation, whilst site owner Piers Hartley, and the mill owner the Friston Mill Foundation look to secure an estimated £400,000 to restore the mill.
