The Mill, Hinderwell

This image Hinderwell wind mill is from a Tom Watson of Lythe post card, un-post marked we are unsure of the precise date. The mill was built in 1820 by Isaac Moon who was also miller at the Dalehouse water mill, it stood seven storeys high and powered by four sails.  In 1870 a steam engine was installed to help power the mill.  Villagers used to hold dances on the mill floor and it was dismantled in  1915. The mill is marked on old maps  and was behind the High Street, to the south west, between the road and the railway. It would have been close to where the Serenity Camp Site is now.
