Broughton Windmill

Further to the previous note at I believe that this is the Broughton Mill.

that was [probably] occupied by Thomas Winn (land held in 1814), then [Thomas Winn’s probable son] John Winn (who listed it in his 1867 will having apparently bought it from Foster) and then John Winn’s step-son (Porkess). The mill stood in the village on what is now Mill Lane. Sadly this has long since been demolished and the site built over. Castlethorpe Mill is a different mill situated nearby. I’m still working on putting the full story together and would welcome any further information you may have. I will of course let you know when I have completed my research. Thanks to Jon Sass, Diana LeCore and Ron Cookson for comments so far.

Best Regards
