Windmill In Cramlington, Northumberland
An old sail-less windmill situated within a farmers field.
There is a not lot of information out there about the Old Windmill in Cramlington, other than that it is dated 1749 with the initials M.W. (Matthew White) on the lintel of the south door.
There are tracks up to it in the field, although the crop has always been quite tall when I visited, so I have admired from the road. Best wait until the crops have died down before venturing nearer to it.
Here is some information from the Historic England website.
Good-quality squared stone. Straight-sided round tower without any external division between the 3 floor levels. Chamfered plinth. Opposed doorways on ground floor, 3 small windows on each upper floor; all openings in chamfered surrounds. Interior: 2 plain lst-floor fireplaces, various sockets for floor beams and machinery. Intact shell but no roof or floors..

How To Find Cramlington Windmill
Where To Park For Cramlington Windmill?
Lat / Long
What three words
At the Plessey roundabout head towards Merck Sharp and Dohme and the huge wind turbines and keep looking to the right. After a few hundred metres you will spy the windmill in a gap in the hedge next to a gate and a fingerpost. Just park at the side of the road.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.More Places from Simon
