The Windmill was erected in 1796 on the site of an earlier structure. A fixed tower mill with automatic fan wheel for turning the unusual cap into the wind. When advertised for sale in 1860 it contained two pairs of mill stones; one French, one Grey. Subsequent owners were Mr C. Walker, Robert Dobson Snr, Robert Dobson Jnr, Mr Wilkinson; and taken over by Eric Stonehouse of Wakefield. Today it still stands but not as a windmill.
