North Leigh windmill

North Leigh windmill was built in 1833 by a local baker and miller. It had four common sails and a conical cap. The mill was restored in 1881 and again in 1933, but during the Second World War the cap was removed to make an observation post. This led the interior of the building to fall into decay, The mill still lacks sails, but now has a new cap to make it weatherproof.
