Julia and I visit Bursledon Windmill in Hampshire, and have a fabulous tour by Gary Freeman, the miller, and volunteer, Jane. Bursledon mill is a five-storey tower mill with a reefing stage at first floor level. The boat shaped cap is winded by a chain and wheel. The four Common sails are carried on a wooden windshaft, which also carries the wooden brake wheel.
The windmill site is owned by Hampshire buildings preservation trust, managed by Hampshire cultural trust which is funded by Hampshire County council Eastleigh borough council and Bursledon parish council also fund the windmill.
