This beauty sits on the National Trust property at Wicken Fen, where its spins us back to the time of a busy peat digging industry in the area.
Wicken Fen, Cambridgeshire, March 2020
This traditional windmill is the last remaining of six wind pumps that used to drain the turf pits here in Cambridgeshire. Thankfully, it has been renovated and put back to use, but now doing the opposite of what it used to do. It used to remove water, and now it brings water in, pumping it up from a nearby ditch and onto Sedge Fen.
