Mapping the windmill
New hardback pp 307 + xii. Published by the Charles Close Society, a learned body whose interest lies in all aspects of the history of the Ordnance Survey. The author’s approach to the history of the windmill represents a new one for the literature of mills and the sheer quirkiness of the treatment meted out to windmills by the Ordnance Survey will surprise many.
Profusely illustrated with many hitherto unpublished pictures of mills as well as map images (including 16 pages of colour plates), Mapping the Windmill tells the full story of the effectiveness with which windmills found themselves being mapped over a period of more than two centuries. This is a book that devotees of mills will not want to miss out on.
