HistoryEdit

Nyetimber Mill was built in the early 1840s and was working until tailwinded in 1915. The sails were on the mill until they were struck by lightning in 1927. The mill became derelict and was burnt out in 1962, leaving the windshaft perched above the ivy covered tower.[2] The mill was converted to a house by 2005.

DescriptionEdit

Nyetimber Mill is a four-storey brick tower mill with an ogee cap. It had four Patent sails and was winded by a fantail. The mill drove two pairs of millstones. An external pulley enabled the mill to be worked by an engine.[2] This has been retained in the converted mill.
