Decayed Technology

Long Stratton Mill: 23 March 2019

Time was, a windmill was the last word in technology. Every village and town must have at least one. Wind-driven, it could be sited away from the rivers. It wouldn’t get flooded when the winter snows melted. This was, after all, the Mini Ice Age. And the state of that millstone advertises its long years of use.

I have a choice of two titles for this photo. I’ll go for Decay

    Cool shot. The more I learn about water- and wind-powered mills, the more amazed I am that they ever got those things to work in the first place.
