8/538 Stevington Windmill
- II*

Post-mill dated 1770 on one of the crosstrees. Rebuilt 1921 and restored in
1951. Two-storey body, timber-framed with pitch pine weatherboarding.
Gambrel corrugated iron roof. Four common sails (no longer covered).
Internal machinery completely restored and in workable order. Roundhouse
around base was probably added in C19, rubble with tile roof. This is the
only complete windmill left in Bedfordshire and probably the last windmill in
England to work with four common sails. (Beds C.C. - Stevington Windmill
