Site of Possible Windmill on Windmill Hill

Description of this historic site

Documentary evidence suggests that this may be the site of a windmill dating back to at least the Post Medieval period. Its possible location was on Windmill Hill, Ladbroke.

Notes about this historic site

1 The hill is still known as Windmill Hill, although the mill has long disappeared. A document of the first half of the 13th century may refer to the windmill. Possible circumstantial evidence indicates a windmill here in the early 17th century and a map of 1675 shows a windmill in the right location. The windmill is not marked on Beighton’s map of 1725, but what may be a windmill mound is marked on a map of 1775. It seems strange that the windmill is not marked on an estate map of 1639.
