Idea Development: Ellis Windmill

I took a camera up to the area with me, and went to the Lincolnshire Life Museum to see what they offered and discovered that they also are linked to Ellis’s windmill. This sparked some interest from me, as I read that it is run by volunteers as a fully working windmill. I instantly thought this would be ideal, a community of volunteers and the running of the windmill and the whole process of making the bread would be great to document. They weren’t open when I was there, so I took the number and phoned them to be granted permission to take photos over the weekend.

“This wonderful mill is located on Mill Road behind the museum, so called due to the nine windmills that formerly faced west over the steep slopes of the Lincoln Edge. Ellis’s Mill is now the sole survivor of these mills.”

Ellis’ Mill is an excellent surviving example of a small tower mill and dates from 1798.
