Photographer's Note

The windmill is one of the oldest surviving mills in West Sussex, originally built in 1750 to provide flour for the Goodwood estate. It was restored in 1934 and 1955. At a height of 400 feet it stands prominently on the South Downs near Chichester and was even painted by Turner. Although not used since the 1900s it has remained a useful landmark for mariners and it is said that it was used as a navigational aid by World War II pilots returning to base in Sussex.
