Archaeology Notes

NY16NE 118 c. 194 672

About 1/4 mile E of the River Annan, the site of a windmill marked on John Thomson's 1828 map. The mill was apparently in use until its demolition in the mid-nineteenth century to make way for housing.

I L Donnachie and N K Stewart 1967.

The windmill is depicted on Wood's map of Annan (1826), and on the 1st edition of the OS 1:2500 scale map (Dumfriesshire, sheet lxii.8, 1858-9). Wood's map represents it as a freestanding round tower, whereas the OS show in addition attached wings to E, W and S. The windmill was subsequently demolished and replaced by Provost Mill (OS 2nd edition 1:2500, Dumfriesshire, 1899). The mill is also depicted in a general view of Annan by D O Hill, c.1840, which shows it as a tapering tower mounting four sails.
