Windmills in and around Wisbech

£15.00

A booklet, 64pp., with b/w photographs and drawings.

‘Windmills in and around Wisbech’ is an amalgamation of ‘Wisbech Windmills’ and ‘Windmills around Wisbech’ both of which were written by Arthur Oldham in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. Neither book was ever published and only a few typed or handwritten copies exist.

Robert Bell has supplied a great deal of additional information, particularly on the early history of many of the mills and the inclusion of some mills not mentioned by Oldham. Personal reminiscences are those of Arthur Oldham. Information on local mills came from a wide variety of sources.

Al bibliography and a glossary of milling terminology.
