Elwick Windmill

Elwick Windmill was built in the mid 19th century and is located about half a mile south west of Elwick, and is visible from the A19 road. The windmill had been derelict, but was restored c.2008 with a new cap roof and fan tail, and converted to a 4 bedroom house, still incorporating the internal workings of the original rig. The windmill is a Grade II listed building.
