Heaton Windmill

Windmill In Jesmond Dene, Tyne And Wear

An old ruined windmill sitting in Armstrong Park.

Used for grinding corn for flour, this windmill was most likely constructed in the early 18th Century. 

Standing at 20 feet tall it occupied a prominent position in Armstrong Park, but by 1844 it was in ruins. The surrounding countryside also began to change as farms disappeared making way for industry including housing for shipyard and factory workers.

It's all sealed off now so you can't enter it, but you can still walk right up to it.

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.
