This image does not show the state of that windmill today. The top The Vanes have all been removed some years ago. The roof now is that stuff you put on flat roofs. Shame I do remember when it lloked like the image shown.

Fulwell Windmill is currently undergoing renovations and should be complete by early 2018. A new Tearoom has already opened (Wed-Sat 10am-3pm). Lovely food freshly made on site. Pop in for updates on how the renovations are taking shape and for a cuppa!

It's looking very sad for itself at the moment but I remember when it was open and I went for a tour. It was very good and had great views of the surrounding area. Hope they restore it and get it back working soon.

The Fulwell Mill was restored some years ago and was a delight to visit and photograph. Sadly today it is back to it's old abandoned neglected state. The sails and the dombed roof have all gone. All that money wasted. Very sad.
