    Windmill

    Green’s Windmill is a restored and working 19th century tower windmill in Sneinton, Nottingham.

    East Midlands - Nottinghamshire, Nottongham

    Green’s Windmill is a restored and working 19th century tower windmill in Sneinton, Nottingham. Built in the early 1800s, it remained in use until the 1860s. It was renovated in the 1980s and is now part of a science centre.

    The Mill was built shortly after 1807 by the father of 19th-century mathematical physicist George Green, whose name was also George Green. It is located on the site of a previous post mill and there were at least two other mills on Windmill Lane in Sneinton. In 1829 the elder Green died and his son inherited the mill and operated it until his death in 1841.

    The mill was still in use until the 1860s, after which it was abandoned and gradually fell into disrepair. In 1923 a copper cap was fitted at the top to make the building watertight and this survived until a fire destroyed it in 1947. .. more
