There are still lots of windmills in the UK.
This one is on the seafront at Lytham, near Blackpool.

Some have been converted into homes and for other uses. This one is a holiday cottage.

 That's cruel but funny, the first ever pole dancing squirrel  :lol:


I thought about how long it might take the squirrel to find another food source. Probably not too long. But really their noises and laughter were too contagious. Vaseline should use it in a commercial. :D

Then there's a guy to does this in his back yard. I kind of like the natural seating.

Look at the size of that beam! How old is the windmill? I wonder if the beam is handtool hewn, and how massive was the tree it came from.

I'm sort of a kook when it comes to wood structures, floor plans, maps; I'll look for hours. :shock:
I know what you mean, Joce, with me it's maps
The windmill dates back to 1741, so I expect it would be hand tooled.

Great place for a lost weekend, I'm sure I'd spend much of it staring at the millworks. :shock:

I'm the dork. There are all kinds of windmills in the US.

HA! No, no, here's one from the wiki that lists them all and there are many.

Deployed to the Region X FEMA Office (the Pacific Northwest region), there was construction of a huge office building going on. The contractor put up this fence. I snapped this the day before a big storm that took the leaves from all the trees.
