AboutBembridge’s Windmill outlived around a dozen others on the Isle of Wight and now stands proud as a prize National Trust property.
For two centuries it provided employment for the town’s millers before the arrival of the railways led to its last operation shortly before the First World War.
Today, visitors can climb up four flights of stairs to see the view from the top.
A painting by Turner which hangs in the kiosk is something of a curiosity, as it shows water by the inland windmill. The reason is that up until the Victorian era, Bembridge was almost an island in itself before Brading Haven was drained, making it much more accessible.
