Whitburn Mill

  • Description

    Overlooking the sea, this wonderful building is found in the village of Whitburn. It no longer works. Whitburn windmill, dating from the eighteenth century, is a local landmark. Durham County Council, which covered the South Tyneside area until 1974, took ownership of the mill in 1960 from the Church Commissioners. The building is listed (Grade 2) as it is considered to be of special architectural and historical importance and is protected therefore by the requirements of the Planning (Listed Building and Conservation Areas) Act 1990. In 1991/1992 South Tyneside Council undertook a restoration project of the mill, including restoration of the sails, for which it was awarded the Civic Trust Award. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitburn,_South_Tyneside" >en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitburn,_South_Tyneside
