A   unique   experience   as   you   step   back   in   time.   The   mill   is   very   much   a heritage piece as you might expect of a Grade 1 listed building. While   some   historians   think   the   mill   was   built   around   1813,   a   map   from   1810 shows a windmill already on the site. The current mill tower was most likely built in 1844. What   is   certain   is   that   the   mill   was   worked   as   a   commercial   concern   by   the last     owners,     Dobsons,     until     the     1960s.     It     was     then     purchased     for preservation   by   the   County   Council   and   has   been   run   since   by   groups   of volunteers. The BLM Heritage Group is now custodian of the site.
