windmills Brill Windmill and A Passion for Motor Bikes

Sylvia's relatives have a long association with Brill and the windmill there. Her paternal grandfathers family owned a brickworks there during the 1800's and dug the clay, for making the bricks, in the area around the windmill. The remains of the pits still survive, making it a very unusual landscape in the area around the mill.

There's a great photo of a 1950's car in front of the mill to accompany the article, as well as some more up to date photos. And the passion for motorobikes - that refers to motor bike scrambles that used to take place around the clay pits.
