John Webb's Windmill, Thaxted
Built in 1804. www.thaxted.co.uk/?History_of_Thaxted:Thaxted_Windmill ( www.thaxted.co.uk/?History_of_Thaxted:Thaxted_Windmill ) I took these pics during what turned out to be a mini tour of Essex yesterday afternoon. Starting off in Chelmsford, the County Town of Essex, where I enjoyed my usual cappuccino and muffin, I headed to the outskirts of Braintree then onto Stansted Airport and the historic village of Thaxted. Returning home via the scenic route I stopped off at the village of Ford End to photograph the Church. I decided to use manual settings to take these pics, unfortunately I neglected to reset the exposure compensation on my camera which I’d been using for Moon shots, so all these pics were dark and required a fair bit of editing!
