The windmill is one of Warwickshire's most famous landmarks, standing on a hilltop near Warwick for nearly 350 years. It was built in 1632-1633, by Sir Edward Peyto and it remained in working order until 1910. It is the earliest tower mill in England to retain any of its working parts, following itaas successful restoration in the 1960aas.
