My first commissioned article of the year, saw me visiting the working windmills of Lincolnshire. Many of these iconic structures have been restored and brought back to full working use, after years of neglect. Now often run by volunteers, they give visitors the opportunity to see the mills working again, get a glimpse inside and discover the history of milling in the area.
It’s great to see them working once again and there’s no better sight than seeing the sails on the mills turning as you approach from the distance.
They range from 4-8 sailed versions, with one even designed to rotate anti-clockwise. It was fascinating to visit many of them and get a sense of this lost milling practice.
