This large post mill was built in 1789. It was reputedly moved from Chatham, Kent. It had a brick roundhouse hiding a six quarter-bar trestle. The mill had patent sails, ladder and fantail and was in working order up to 1938. The mill was dismantled in 1960. It is now being restored. The trestle is in place, but the buck has not yet been assembled.
