windmills Millwright Ben Hassett, and his work on Flowerdew Hundred windmill

Ben Hassett who started his career working with Derek Ogden, is now running his own millwrighting business. His most recent project was major structural work on the windmill at Flowerdew Hundred, which was built in 1978. The work necessitated lifting the buck off the trestle for inspection and repair, and the removal of the old crowntree.
