Spocott Windmill
This windmill is typical of the grist post mills used in the 18th and 19th centuries for grinding garin. Such a windmill, built here about 1850 by John A L Radcliffe, was blown down in the blizzard of 1888. In 1972 it was reconstructed using the original grinding stones and internal steps.
