This mill had four sails, and a light iron bowsprit. The cap was of the penthouses type with deep vertical boarded petticoats and finials, and were turned by twin tail poles joined at the bottom. The short steeply battered towers with vertical overlapping weather boards were tarred; caps as usual were shingle covered.
