One of only four windmills open to the public in Greater London, Shirley Windmill was built in 1854 and is located in Croydon.

Working in collaboration with Frank Paine, who is the Tour Co-ordinator at the Friends of Shirley Windmill, I created a website outlining the history of the mill and providing information for those wishing to visit it.
Frank’s beautiful line drawings feature prominently throughout the website:
