I feel it's more than a little over-rated and as someone else said, it's looks ok from a distance but that's about it.

The mill was badly damaged in 1902 when a storm blew the sails off. It is a pity one cannot do a circular walk without having to walk on a fairly dangerous road.

Pretty windmill which is easy to access from a tiny car park. I had driven past it many times and not spotted it until I went camping at Town Farm Campground in Ivinghoe.

Have never been inside this windmill, but its location and scenery around it is amazing. If you love photography, this is a great subject to photograph at any time of the year. The surrounding Chiltern Hills also providing plenty of places to walk and photograph
