windmills Unidentified windmill fire

I have been sent this photo of a post card apparently showing a windmill on fire, with the following explanation:
"I have this photo in an old album which I picked up in junk shop. Any idea where it may be from, the family had connections near Bury St Edmunds, and in Hartest, Glomsford and Boxted Suffolk,part of the family lived Putney, London area and in High Wycombe. Sadly there is not any writing on the reverse only made out as photo postcard, divided back."

Can anyone help identify the mill?


Update:Identified as East Knoyle, Wiltshire, which burnt in 1912.
Mills: [East Knoyle]
