windmills Gaulter's Cottage windmill, Preesall

Preesall in Lancashire, like much of the Fylde, has a strong windmill tradition. There's a remaining windmill tower on the Mill Industrial Estate to the south of the centre, and a Mill Street in the centre of town indicating a mill once stood there as well.

In addition, it's been pointed out to me that there is a recently erected post mill out in the grounds of Gaulter's Cottage to the east of town. Apart from the suggestion that the mill is used for woodworking, I have no further details on this.

The mill can be seen in an aerial shot in Google Maps, but also in more details in the oblique views offered by Live Maps.
