EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the timeless beauty of Polegate Windmill, also known as Ovenden's Mill, located in Park Croft, Willingdon and Jevington, Wealden, East Sussex. Built in 1817, this majestic four-storey brick tower mill stands tall with its domed cap winded by a fantail. The intricate details of this historic windmill are showcased through the lens of Chris Redgrave's drone camera. From a bird's-eye view from the west, we can appreciate the grandeur of this architectural marvel. Standing at an impressive height of 47 feet, it commands attention and admiration. Polegate Windmill boasts four Patent sails or sweeps gracefully carried on a cast iron wind shaft. Its wooden Brake Wheel adds to its rustic charm while serving an essential function in harnessing the power of the wind. The first floor stage provides access to various levels within the mill. In its heyday, this magnificent structure drove two pairs of overdrift millstones with remarkable precision and efficiency. Additionally, there was a third pair driven underdrift by an auxiliary engine – a testament to technological advancements during that era. As we gaze upon this image captured by Chris Redgrave's lens, we are transported back in time to witness history unfold before our eyes. This print not only showcases Polegate Windmill's industrial significance but also highlights its enduring legacy as an iconic landmark in East Sussex.
