The windmill at South Ockendon

The windmill in South Ockendon was built at the beginning of the 19th century. It blew down in November 1977, thus ending an association with milling on the site dating back to as early as 1295. This photograph is from "Grays Thurrock - a pictorial history" by Barry Barnes. The South Ockendon windmill is described in Panorama 34.
