windmills Stone Cross windmill wins rare award

As reported in the Eastbourne Herald, 14 January 2005:

Stone Cross Windmill has been presented with a plaque by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) after bringing it back to full working order. The awards are rarely made - only 12 have been awarded since the society was formed in 1991. They are presented for work only of the highest standard, which demonstrate quality workmanship and attention to detail. The presentation was made by Mildred Cookson, outgoing chair of the Mills Section. It was received by John Hone, Chairman of Stone Cross Mill Trust, on behalf of the mill and a further address was given by Peter Hill, chairman of the Sussex Mills Group who put forward the mill for this award.

Note: I've repeated the clipping as passed to me, but the SPAB Mills section was formed long before 1991 - this could be a simple transcription error.
