Chollerton Farm with windmill and Steam engine chimney (c) Sally Hutt

The windmill tower at Chollerton Farm is a striking landmark.  The windmill was built for farm use, probably in the early 19th century.  The farm also has chimney distinctive of having a steam engine added.  Thus the farm, modern for its time, would have had plenty of power for threshing and driving other farm machinery.  In many cases a some milling may have also been carried out, largely as feed for animals used around the farm.
