Thatched Windmills

Stembridge Mill, High Ham

It's an oft repeated fact that the last surviving thatched windmill in England is Stembridge Mill, High Ham, Somerset.

Whilst this is indeed the last surviving substantially complete thatched windmill in England, there are a number of other remains of windmills which have a thatched roof.


Small Windmill, Skerries

Not far across the water, there is a thatched windmill in the mills complex at Skerries.





There are many examples of thatched windmills in Europe.
