Future

The long-term plan is to restore the Windmill to full working order. This ambitious plan is already well underway and has been split into the following phases:

Argos Hill Windmill
Phase 1 - Make waterproof and structurally sound - including repairs to trestle, framework, roundhouse, re-weatherboarding, re-painting and installing new steps [completed 2016]

Phase 2 - Install sails that are capable of free-wheeling - complete with some shutters and striking gear [completed 2016]

Phase 3 - Renew tailpole and fantail - to static condition

Phase 4 - Return to full working order - by repairing all machinery and re-instating the full turning circle

All work will be carried out in accordance with the "Philosophy of Mill Repair" as laid out by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. Phases 1 and 2 were completed in 2016 and phase 3 is now underway. Restoration to full working order is a longer-term aspiration.
