An exemplar mill recorder, Smith was most likely to be found riding his bicycle in pursuit of a windmill. He traversed the country for his research and created the systematic County Windmill series from his notes. An anecdote from which reveals that during his travels, he fell head first off his bicycle into a 6ft deep ditch. The collection also features beautiful colour photographs of mills that he visited, diaries, the book series, and his research notes. One of our blog posts - "The top 4 adventures of Arthur C Smith" - provides a humorous insight into the life of this man.
