windmills Danzey Green mill working by wind again

After being under repair for a while, at the hands of Adam Marriot, the restored Midlands post mill from Danzey Green, now at Avoncroft museum of buildings, is once again capable of working by wind. She only has a single pair of sails at the moment, but nonetheless, Adam reports that, just in time for the Easter holiday weekend, he
"finally got the backstays on and had the mill working this evening. She was struggling in a very light wind but cracked wheat well and nearly ground. Hopefully have her running at the weekend!"
