Saxtead Green Post Mill

Saxtead Green Post Mill. Embargoed to 0001 Friday August 23 New sails are fitted to Saxtead Green Post Mill near Framlingham, Suffolk, an18th century corn-grinding windmill, as part of a '250,000 conservation project. Picture date: Thursday August 22, 2019. The mill was originally built in 1796 and ceased use in 1947 when its last miller died. It is kept in working order and regularly opened to visitors by English Heritage. The mill is a rare example of a post mill, with its body mounted on a single vertical post and able to turn around it to bring the sails into the wind. It has been rebuilt three times over the years, with cast iron machinery added in 1854. See PA story HERITAGE Mill.
