Thompson's Mill, Epworth
Built in the early 19th century, and worked by the Thompson family for several generations. It had four patent sails and three pairs of stones. It was tailwinded in 1882 and repaired by public subscription. It was still working with two sails when it was damaged by a flying bomb in December 1944. It continued provender milling using an engine driven mill until the 1980s. It retains much machinery.
