windmills Stevens' Mill, Burwell refurbishment complete

Stevens' Mill, Burwell has just had a minor refurbishment - plaster on the tower has been repaired and painted with 2 coats of tar, sail shutters have been replaced with stronger ones which should last longer than the previous ones, and external woodwork (including the sails) has been repaired where necessary and repainted. The work was done by millwrights R Thompson & Son of Alford, Lincolnshire, who were also asked to quote for supplying and fitting a second pair of sails - the museum hopes to raise the money to add these in the next few years, though the mill works quite happily on the two sails it has now!
