Site of Poss Post Medieval Windmill NW of Manor Ho
The possible site of a post mill, a windmill mounted on a post. The post mill dated to the Post Medieval period. The site is suggested by documentary evidence and is located 400m north east of Street Ashton.
1 Ashton. Built by 1598. Recorded 1725. Ceased by late 18th century. Post mill.
2 The 1725 reference may be Beighton’s map, but the two mills marked on this map are probably PRN 3551 and 3552. The site may, therefore, be spurious.
