EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back to the picturesque countryside of Suffolk in November 1950. The image showcases a windmill that stands proudly amidst the rural landscape of Thornham Magna, Suffolk. With its timber-clad structure, this post mill exudes an air of rustic charm and timeless beauty. However, upon closer inspection, it becomes evident that the passage of time has taken its toll on this magnificent structure. The once majestic sails now appear motionless against the backdrop of a cloudy sky. The fantail, designed to keep the sails facing into the wind, seems frozen in place. And as we gaze at the roundhouse surrounding the base of the mill, we can't help but feel a sense of melancholy as it appears to be slowly succumbing to ruin. Photographed by Hallam Ashley with great attention to detail and composition, this image captures not only a moment frozen in time but also serves as a poignant reminder of our ever-changing world. It reminds us that even structures built with strength and purpose are not immune to nature's relentless forces. As we admire this photograph from Historic England's collection, let us reflect on how history intertwines with nature's course and how preservation efforts play an essential role in safeguarding our cultural heritage for future generations.
