Another great shot Steve, I think I like this one a little more than the first shot, not just for the point of view but the greyish blue skies seem to compliment the the windmill!
Best wishes Steve
Thankyou Sam yes it was a bit dull at times i stood around ages waiting for a break in the clouds and for the mill to be in the sun but what you can't tell from the photo is the sails were going around to the sound af all that wood creaking
I know what you mean Steve, I wonder how much time we spend waiting for the sun to show it's face, you didn't see Windy Miller then Steve? :D
Really going around Steve or is that poetic licence?
It is a great shot of Silvers, Greys and white and this is the best angled shot I've seen of this particular beauty ~~~ which means firstly a Y* and secondly a club membership card!!!
Well done Steve ~~~ Ciao nick
Hi Sam as you can see the doors are now open if Windy Miller wears blue overhalls then that was probably him that came out to say they were starting the sails ..
Hello Nick and yes really going round and what a nice sound too i took a small piece of video with the camera .. thank you for your Y* and my club membership card . yippee
Hello Bruce thank you for the G* on my old windmill .it is the only eight sailed mill in the u.k and only about 8 miles from my home in ruskington its just a pitty it's surrounded by buildings to get a very clear shot
Hi Bruce possibly so as long as i don't get arrested as a peeping tom
This is a great shot Steve ;>) One of the finest windmills I have ever seen!! Eight blades too! It must have been extremely powerful in its day. Is it milling corn or pumping water? I am guessing that it has been re-furbished quite recently?
Either way, its going in my faves!! Nice job Steve
I've just read the history of this incredible machine Steve. Driving four wheels and other sundry gear, it certainly is a very powerful mill.
I was amused to learn of Master Miller Pocklingtons skills as a sawyer, miller, builder and farmer. How convenient!! A little sawdust in the flour would certainly give the bread a nutty flavour! ;>))
Hi Jim thanks for the Y* yes this mill was for grinding corn and i believe still does from time to time they were starting a guided tour inside the mill as i took these photos but unfortunatly i did not have the time to have a look inside this time so did not get chance to buy any sawdust flour !!
Thank you FWWS for your indepth look at my humble offerings i am very pleased you found several you liked
What a special windmill Steve. The 8 wicks are particular, but the color of the mill wicks is also very special, thank you. I have another WINDMILL for you.
Nice regards, Jac
Hello Jac thank you for another nice comment and thank you for the link to your lovely windmill too
