Tower windmill. 1796 using materials from demolished late C16
Shire Hall. Dressed stone. Conical tower, covered in
scaffolding at time of inspection. Blocked entrance recorded
as having Royal arms from Shire Hall above (not found); iron
roundel above has lettering: 1796/ MI. Windows, some blocked,
have wedge lintels with keys. Cap missing.
INTERIOR retains heavily moulded floor beams of substantial
scantling to each floor, possibly incorporated from demolition
of Elizabethan Shire Hall in 1793. Some heavy timbers and
trusses to conical roof remain. The mill was steam powered by
1847 and ceased working in early 1880s and was derelict by the
late 1930s. Although derelict, the mill is an important
landmark in Stafford The site is believed to be that of the
Norman Royal castle of c1070, and the mill is sometimes
claimed as standing on the foundations of the castle keep.
