This picture in my opinion shows the value of re visiting old files and folders, sitting here with the rain pounding at the windows I took the opportunity to do just that and I'm very pleased that I did.
Taken earlier this year with my E1, hardly any PP, it's just about how it came out of the can.

Hi Neil

I like the composition of this image. You have captured the scene well.
Is this the Mill at Shipley, West Sussex? Or is it one of the Mills on the South Downs below Burgess Hill (Jack and Jill)?
I have not seen any of the mills in this light before and the image has provided me with with a new prospective on local landmarks. Thank you.

Hi John

Sorry I did mean to mention in my post, meet Jill......the sister of Jack.

I live quite close to these two so have got to know them a bit over the years, here's another one taken just a few weeks ago.

A bit of a comedy moment really, have you ever stood in the middle of a field asking two sheep to say cheese?

I like the first shot, and the lack of pp (not that it was needed). Looks like the simple application of "Be there" *chr

Interesting from a non-forum point of view. It must be unusual to have a post and a tower mill so close together. Do you know when each was built or if there's a story behind it?

No, and if I had I'm not sure I'd admit to it :D

Sorry, meant to include this in the last post, but allowed the system to rule :o !

On a non-photo basis, it must be unusual to have a post and a tower mill so close together. Do you know when each was built, and is there a story behind it?

Hello Andrew

The best guide I can offer by way of the history of these two mills can be found here.

http://www.jillwindmill.org.uk/JJHistory.htm

They hold open days throughout the summer which allows visitors inside Jill which are well attended. Jack is now privately owned and off limits.
