Site of windmill or windpump. Marked on (S1).
E. Rose (NAU), 28 July 1980.
A windmill, post mill, noted as 'removed into the Fen Sept.1821'. Pulled down 1880.
E. Rose (NAU), 29 January 1982.
 states that this site is wrong and that the mill stood one field further east, as shown on (S2) and (S3), where foundations were found in recent years. A second mill stood 'roughly' opposite on the north side of the road.
Yet the marking on (S1) is quite clear and  confirms it. Sources need checking.
E. Rose (NAU), 15 February 1988.
