Storm Damages Avoncroft’s Iconic Windmill

January storms have seriously damaged our windmill from Danzey Green, Warwickshire, causing one of its sails to break in two. The broken part of the sail has pierced the roof of the windmill’s lower section, causing further damage. This is especially catastrophic as the windmill had only recently been repaired to a workable condition, and plans for our volunteers to mill and produce flour will be significantly delayed. Repairs are likely to cost in the region of £5,000. Watch this space for further updates on the windmill’s condition.
