windmills St Olaves windpump tailwinded

The storms that ravaged much of the UK last week caused damage to a large number of buildings.

Michael Roots reports that St Olaves windpump, Norfolk, was one of those damaged - probably tailwinded, and he sent this picture taken 21/1/07 - showing the cap has been lifted off, though fortunately it is still attached to the mill body, and not smashed to pieces. (The sails appear to be undamaged - the "step" visible in the frame of the sail is a design feature - the rear pair of sails have this step, so that they do not catch on the body of the mill).

There is a picture of the mill from last summer on flickr.
