Cat and Fiddle Mill
2.9.52 (formerly listed as
Windmill of Midlands post type (ie: with body rotating about
head of post but with added support via rollers from roundhouse
below). Dated 1788 on upper cross tree. Coursed squared
gritstone, brick and timber. Circular gritstone base of
tapering profile. Reinforced by four later brick buttresses.
Two doorways with plank doors. Weather-boarded superstructure
with gabled top, projecting on one side. On the opposite side
is a lean-to projection. This has plank double doors and
descending from these a hinged broad step ladder, through which
projects the turning post. On opposite side are the four wooden
sails of spring-type. Inside, the massive crown tree in the
base, supports the superstructure. In the upper part is the
wire machine, mill stones, wind shaft and the brake and the
drive wheels. The machinery is almost in working condition.
The mill is one of only three of Midlands type preserved in the
country (and the other two are substantially rebuilt).
