THE VILLAGES

THE WINDMIL

The local windmill was originally a tower mill built in 1863 for the processing of cereals but ceased working about 1911. It was later rented by Gilbert Cannan and his wife Mary, the former wife of JM Barrie. They were visited at the mill by members of the Bloomsbury Group and many other artists, writers and poets including DH Lawrence and Katherine Mansfield.

Brick built, and once tarred, the windmill has been converted to a house and is now painted white. The current owners are sympathetically restoring its cap and sails to its original Victorian splendor

THE FULL MOON

The Pub is thought to have been an alehouse since 1693 and has been known as the Half Moon, the Moon and now the Full Moon. It has been extended over the years but remains an attractive pub in a picturesque setting
