Pitstone Windmill

Took a mad dash out to Pitstone this evening to catch the last light and a few images of this windmill. According to trusty wikipedia; it is thought to have been first built circa 1627 as this date is carved on part of the framework. This is the earliest date to be found on any windmill in the British Isles. It should be remembered that such a structure would have had to have frequent repairs made to it, so it is quite possible the mill predates 1627.
