(1027) All looking very run down. Entrance way gated off with plenty of signs letting you know you are not welcome to explore.

A scary sign so took photos and ran......In its prime this was one of the most elegant mills in Lincolnshire. It is dated C.I.R. 1836 and was built for a Mr. Rubbins. It worked until 1942 and lost its six patent sails in 1947. The cap followed soon after and it now stands disused but still in reasonable condition. It is very tall, being 68 feet high to the curb, with eight floors. There was a stage at second floor level, and the four pairs of stones remain on the third floor, two French and two grey. http://www.bench-marks.org.uk/bm71197 a rivot on the steps of the mill? after visiting the trig point discovered there was a rivet here. as we did not hang around due to the imposing sign this was not investigated. this apparently has been an agricultural scrap yard for many years - a dream for vintage finders

On the basis that a windmill is cylindrical, the centre is still present and good. However, the mill is in a bad state of repair.

Derelict cordoned-off ivy-clad tower. No roof, so Rivet presumably gone.
