windmills New guidebook to Shirley Windmill

Frank Paine has edited a guide to Shirley windmill, recently published by the Friends of Shirley windmill.

The guide covers the post mill from 1808 (destroyed by fire in 1854), and the subsequent tower mill built with recycled machinery. It also mentions the mill being hit by lightning in 1899 and 1906, and some restoration work in 1927, followed many years later by the current work which has restored the mill to working order.
