Mike Norrey - Much Wenlock Windmill

Cover of Much Wenlock Windmill by Mike Norrey

The remains of a mysterious stone tower on the summit of Windmill Hill stand at the northern end of the small market town of Much Wenlock in Shropshire. Its history has intrigued not only locals but those interested in old windmill structures. Various suggestions for the age of the tower have been offered but until now these have had no firm basis in research. Based on carefully researched records of estate ownership, coupled with early inscription dates identified within the structure, Mike Norrey reveals for the first time the construction date of this early stone windmill.

Using the results of a structural survey, the author has gone on to offer an interpretation of the likely size and configuration of the mill's major components.
