Wicken Village Windmill, Cambridgeshire

Wicken Fen Fantail Dave PearceWicken Corn Windmill is a large Cambridgeshire smock mill built in 1813. It is currently the only smock, or wooden tower, windmill represented in the TCMG. The mill drives two pairs of French burr stones, and various types of flour dresser. The windmill business closed in 1933, although the it was still worked occasionally by engine until 1942.
