GREAT CHISHILL WINDMILL
Just 5 miles from my home town of Royston, at the eastern end of the Chilterns, is the village of Great Chishill where this very fine post mill still survives. The first authentic record of a mill here appears in 1592. The first recorded owners were the Cooke family and the first recorded miller was Joseph Rule in 1677. Cambridgeshire County Council acquired the mill in the 1960s, after William Pegram stopped working it in 1951. It is now preserved and open to the public. I took this in the very early 70s.not long after I had started doing photography as a serious hobby.
