windmills Steam engines for Mills Weekend

Windmill Hill windmill was visited by 500 visitors, and a selection of steam traction engines and tractors on the Sunday of National Mills weekend.

The mill is about to be completely dismantled and rebuilt at a cost of more than £1M. As the largest surviving post mill in England, it was used as a landmark by ships on the Channel and by WWII British bomber pilots returning from France.
