Thaxted Windmill

We were fortunate enough to be able to go inside this wonderful windmill. Built in 1804, it was used for grinding flour.

Looking down over the quaint village of Thaxted.

Forrest taking in the view.

My first time in a windmill. This one had many vantage points, all worth a look-see.

My bird's eye view of the patterns in the field caught my attention. I could just see the farmer in the tractor, looking up at the windmill as she/he was making the turn.

Beautiful old print of the windmill.

Wheel works of the windmill.
