Up in the wind: Windmills


English Heritage pocket book, 80pp., profusely illustrated with colour photographs.

Writer and photographer Peter Ashley finds mills rumbling and shaking as they once again grind corn, drainage mills out on lonely marshes that in a very watery past pumped water up from low-lying fields into rivers, and the most ubiquitous mills of all, the derelict stumps out in the fields that still remind us of their past glories as essential working machines.
