AMAZING FACTS ABOUT OUR WINDMILL

The white cap, its contents, sails and fantail weigh 12 tons (i.e. the weight of 8 family cars).
 

The cap is not connected to the brick tower, it ‘floats’ on bearings so it can rotate 360 degrees.
 

The red & white fantail rotates whenever the wind changes direction, day or night, so the sails are always facing into the wind.

The fantail may seem small, however a person can easily stand underneath the rotating blades.
