Up in the wind: windmills
The windmill is one of our most conspicuous landmarks. This Pocket Book finds mills still rumbling and shaking as they once again grind corn, drainage mills out on lonely East Anglian 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.
