Other Information

  • Moulton Windmill is 29.6 metres tall to the tip of ogee cap but once renovation has seen the sails fitted to it it should be about 37 metres in height making it one of the largest "traditional" windmills in the world.
  • The sails were badly damages in a storm in 1895 having operated since it was originally built and as a result these were removed and the mill was converted to steam power which operated it until 1995.
  • After the mill closed in the mid nineties locals started a campaign to fully restore Moulton Windmill and with the help of the BBC programme Restoration and a grant from English Heritage enough funding was raised to construct a new 14 ton ogee cap to mount on the top and carry out other repairs to the structure. The balcony was repaired in 2008 and if everything goes to plan then the sails of the mill could be installed as soon as 2010.
