1854. Five storeyed circular brick tower mill with 4 sweeps, cap and fantail. The
lower windows have been blocked. No longer working. The machinery seems to incorporate
parts from an earlier mill, a date of 1740 was discovered in the 1927 restoration.
Last restored in the 1960s. Probably the last large windmill to be built in Surrey.
