Photographer's Note

It was built in 1706, which is before Stourport-on-Severn even existed (Stourport is about 80-90 years old, I believe). Before Stourport the area was two villages, Mitten on the other side of the river and Areley Kings on this side where the windmill is.

It was a working windmill until the village became more developed. The long beams of the windmill, which would catch the wind to grind the wheat inside, were taken down and used in the construction of the roof of nearby Saint Bartholemew's Church.

The windmill was converted into a house around 1910, and the roof was replaced in the 1950s (adding a chimney and bricks instead of thatched roof).
The current owners have lived there for 27 years.
