windmills Wray Common cap lifted back into place

The cap of Wray common windmill, Reigate has been lifted back in to place as the latest stage in the work to restore, at least visually, the windmill.

The mill was sold at auction a year ago, to Paul Baker and David Tate for £326,000. The pair have been renovating the property, spending an estimated half million pounds including building an extension to the mill, which is now house converted. The mill stopped work around 1895, and from 1967 was the residence of John Skinner, described as an "eccentric actuary", till he died in 1996, when his partner Jill McEvedy occupied the mill. She moved on in 2003, and the mill was sold.
