A five storey brick tower mill, built in 1860, with a boat shaped cap winded
by a fantail. It has four double Patent sails carried on a cast iron
windshaft. The two pairs of millstones are overdrift. A third pair is
housed on a hurst frame on the ground floor of the mill and can be driven by
engine. At present the mill is without cap and sails while repairs are under
way, but it can still be visited.
