STANSFIELD -
TL 75 SE
7/10000 Tower Mill immediately
west of Mill House

II
Tower mill, now derelict. Datestone "W E 1840", for William
Everard. Probably by Bear of Sudbury. Red brick, partly missing
cement render. Battered tower of 5 storeys, circular on plan; a
few brick courses are missing at the top. Cap and sails removed
since at least 1920's. 2 entrance doorways and 2 first floor
loading doorways; boarded doors (some missing). Various window
openings under segmental arches, 2 retaining 12-paned sash
windows, the other windows missing. Interior: Some pitch pine
main floorbeams, mostly supported on cast iron brackets'.
Surviving machinery includes: lower half of wooden upright shaft,
on which is mounted a wooden clasp-arm spurwheel with 2 sets of
cogs, facing outwards and downwards, for main and auxiliary
drives respectively; both stone nuts; some tentering gear
including one pair of governors; cast iron pinion drive off
spurwheel; a bolter, wire machine and smutter. The bolter is the
last such machine to survive in a Suffolk windmill. This,
together with some of the other machinery, was probably re-used
from an earlier mill on the site.
