windmills The Lost Windmill of West Cowes

The Lost Windmill of West Cowes is a recently published piece of research by Alan Stroud into a suspected, but previously unproven windmill that stood in West Cowes, on the Isle of Wight. Detailed research shows that the mill, built for Thomas Kelleway around 1804 worked for just 2 or 3 years, before apparently losing out to a better positioned mill at the higher edge of the same field. The tower survived for a few years, known as Prospect Tower, but was gone by the time of the 1862 Ordnance Survey map.
