Site of Windmill 200m NW of Cherry Tree Farm, Warmington

Description of this historic site

Notes about this historic site

1 Post mill. Built 17th century. Open trestle, four common sails, roof hipped and extension at tail, two pairs of stones, ladder and tailpole. Worked until dismantled 1910-11.
2 On the top of the hill at SP4047 is a field called Millfield which is presumably the site of a windmill.
3 The site was under plough when visited and there was only a slight undulation which could indicate the mill site.
