A photo of Sneaths Mill, Lutton Gowts taken in 1935.
This is the oldest complete tower mill in the county, the mill is dated ‘T.D. Ayliff 1779’ on a large stone, said to have been a sundial. Although it would appear that the mill was newly constructed at the site in 1777-1779, it has been suggested that the structure itself has earlier origins, and that the current brick construction represents the encasing of a pre-existing smock mill that was brought to the site and converted to a corn mill.
