Description
Roofless three-stage windmill, built c.1750. Circular plan with stepped random rubble walls. Square-headed doorways position opposite each other and having surrounds of selected rubble stones. Slit opening to front face of second stage. Located in field on elevated platform, near Lakeview House.

Appraisal

This windmill is an early example of its type and, although roofless, the form and proportions of the building are still evident. Prominently located on a slight mound in a field, the building has considerable social and technical interest as it was used for the grinding of corn for the local community.
