Brill windmill has been undergoing an extensive restoration, which has included knocking down and rebuilding the roundhouse, reinstating the original rear steps, new weatherboarding, and a set of white painted sails. Whilst the mill will not be properly open until mid-August or so, the official "reopening" ceremony was on Thur 9th July 2009. There was also a reopening party held on Sunday 12th July - with a beer tent on the common, and the roundhouse was open so the work there could be inspected.
There are a good number of photos showing the new appearance of the mill on Flickr.Mills: [Brill] Tags: [restoration]
