This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile29159/Heckington-Windmill,-Lincolnshire,-UK.htm>Heckington Windmill, Lincolnshire, UK</a></b><br><br>Situated in the pretty village of Heckington is this unique eight-sailed working mill which produces stone ground flour by wind power. Orginally built in 1830 as a five-sailer, a violent thunderstorm blew off the cap and sails and it was repaired in 1892 with the cap and eight sails from a windmill in Boston, Lincolnshire. This outstanding example of Victorian engineering was again restored in 2004.<br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=112807/909299hec.jpg>
