windmills Works starts on Rayleigh Windmill

Work is due to start on Rayleigh Windmill on £340,000 worth of work, paid for by a grant from Thames Gateway South Essex Partnership. The work will remove the sails, and then scaffold the mill to allow exterior repairs. Inside the mill modern display units will be installed, along with cameras which can be controlled remotely from the lower floors - hardly the thing in a traditional windmill - but then again, no internal machinery remains, so this is merely making use of the mill tower as exhibition space.
