Over the course of a number of years, David Hayward constructed a half size postmill at his home in Enham village, Hampshire. As a drive ornament it was certainly impressive, but also very impractical, so David was soon searching for a permanent home for the mill.
In the summer of 2016, the mill was moved, carefully, to its new home, which is Finkley Down Farm just outside Enham village, so the journey wasn't long distance wise. However, it did require careful manouvering to get the mill under a railway bridge amongst other obstacles.
There are a number of YouTube videos available, showing the mill working in its new location.
