Wimbledon Common Windmill

The Windmill on Wimbledon Common has been a distinctive landmark since it was built in 1817 to serve the local community. However it only operated until 1864, when the machinery was removed and it was converted to residential accommodation. Today the sails have been restored to working order and the building houses a fascinating museum of windmills, with exhibits on rural life and local history. The museum also has a display of Scouting memorabilia, commemorating the writing of part of 'Scouting for Boys' by Robert Baden-Powell in the Mill House in 1908. http://www.wimbledonwindmill.org.uk/home
