Long Description:
The windpump was working until it was struck by lightning in 1943. It was acquired by the National Trust in 1948 from the Buxton Family and has been restored.
The Buxton family continue to manage the estate, emphasising nature conservation.
Because of this the estate has become an internationally important wildlife site.

The Mill is a Grade II building.
