Above : This windmill (fully restored & working in the late 1980's) in a small French village in the Cotes-d'Armor department of northern Brittany first kindled my interest in windmills

There general pages on Dorset Windmills and also a gazetteer that expands out to give all known historic sites.

The windmills at Easton on the Isle of Portland whose stone towers still survive have their own section.
