Penny Hill Mill, Holbeach 1934.

This tower mill was built in 1826-7 on the site of a smock mill.

It originally had four patent sails driving three pairs of stones but in the late 19th century was raised in height by one storey and re-equipped with six patent sails and four pairs of stones. It worked until the late 1930’s or early 1940’s, latterly on only four sails. By 1953 it had been dismantled.
