Tower mill, North Leigh
In 1907 this tower mill was apparently in working order, with four sweeps. It was built of stone, and the lower part of the mill was ivy-clad. The mill must have deteriorated, and was then restored to a working state in the 1930s. It was again in a dilapidated state by 1979. The mill had common sails, and weathering was achieved using an outside wooden screw and hand chain.
