Description OPEN All surface features have been cleared away but the top of the shaft is visible at ground level, but is filled with rubble 18” down. It is covered by two sheets of metal.

The windmill on the West side of Windmill Lane was probably used for the aircraft post. The windmill is a stone tower mill currently derelict with windows and doors bricked up (there is a planning notice on the gate). A platform has been built on the top with rails around it although this doesn’t look that old.
