Windmill pump © R. Black
This stood at the entrance to Cornhill Farm just off the roundabout (It is shown on the 1897 map above)
After a very strong gale, one or two of the blades were dislodged and landed in the roof of the nearby property.
Shortly after this incident, the structure was taken down.
Can anyone provide more information about the windmill pump, or more photos?
