Derbyshire Windmills Past & Present

by Alan Gifford

Softback, 116 pages, 58 illustrations, including colour photographs of restoration of Heage Windmill.

The success of his 1995 book "Derbyshire Windmills", which speedily sold out, has encouraged Alan Gifford to expand it, and add details of 12 windmills that were missed out of the original.

The new book of 116 pages now features a colour cover and some 58 illustrations, 18 of which are in colour. There are now 84 windmills identified in the county, and the restoration of Heage Windmill features largely, with a four page colour section showing some of the work involved.

Published by The Heage Windmill Society in conjunction with the Midland Wind and Water Mills Group, the book is edited by Colin Blower of the Friends of Heage Windmill. Proceeds will be used for windmill restoration and maintenance.

Price 8.00 + 1.00 p & p

Available from the Visitor Centre at Heage Windmill, from certain bookshops and some branches of the County Library, or by post from:

Alan Gifford, 4 Old Hall Drive, Willington, Derbyshire DE65 6DT.
