Rottingdean Windmill Sunset

Rottingdean mill was built for Thomas Beard, a member of an old Rottingdean family and used to grind local corn into flour for village bakers. In 1877 the miller was George Nicholls. His young son Harry went around the village each day delivering hot rolls before going to school. It has been known internationally since the artist Sir William Nicholson produced a woodcut of it and this design was used as the trademark for Heinemann publishers that has appeared on their books since 1897. The windmill is now maintained by The Rottingdean Preservation Society who also organise these open days which are manned by volunteers. Although admission is free, donations are always welcome to help with the Society’s invaluable work.
