This fully restored, working, 18th Century windmill, the oldest type in the country, was perfectly located to harness the winds sweeping over the plains of Elphin.

This fully restored, working, 18th Century windmill, the oldest type in the country, was perfectly located to harness the winds sweeping over the plains of Elphin. Unusual features are its thatched revolving roof and four sails that are turned into the wind, by using a tailpole attached to a cartwheel on a circular track.
