HEADFRAME
All the timber of the headframe was in poor condition and it was decided to replace it entirely. We chose oak which was delivered directly to Empringhams of High Wycombe, they manufactured it in their workshop, then dismantled and transported to Quainton to be assembled on-site.

SIZE
The red and white fantail looks insignificant when viewed from a distance, however a person can safely stand under the rotating blades.
