windmills Windmill Hill windmill covers come off

The covers have come off after the restoration of Windmill Hill windmill, Sussex by IJP Building Conservation. Some work still remains to be done, such as the addition of sweeps due in May, and the completion of the mechanisms which will keep the mill turned to wind, (to protect the mill from being blown over sideways or tail winded). This mechanism is not traditional, and will include solar panels on the roof and a wind generator which will power batteries to keep the mill turning.

Ian Pritchett of IJP will be giving a talk on the project at Herstmonceux Village Hall on March 8 at 8pm.
