Thaxted Windmill Sail Damage

Oops... Actually pretty remarkable no-one was hurt, the mill was open and turning when a sail cracked, hit the side of the building and smashed through the wooden walkway. Seven people were inside at the time. If they had been in the picnic area outside the mill maybe it would have been a different story!

 

The walkway has been repaired but the remaining sails are in a very dangerous state and the mill is currently sealed off. I'm sure I could hear them creaking in the wind while I was there. Let's hope it's fixed and turning again soon!
