Chesterton Windmill

Some info, shamelessly copied from Wikipedia.

The windmill is one of Warwickshire's most famous landmarks, standing on a hilltop overlooking the village of Chesterton for nearly 350 years, near by the Roman Fosse Way and about five miles (8 km) south-east of Warwick. It was built in 1632-1633. The mill tower with a cap height of 36 feet (11 m), unique worldwide in structure and mechanics, is supported on six semicircular arches, on piers, the outer faces of which are arcs of circles radiating from a common centre.
