Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Today, I add another interesting feature from our visit to Derbyshire, that is a working windmill.

This is Heaage Windmill. I will post three different photographs of the mill, as we saw it. This one first, which shows our approach down the hill and two different ones as we drew closer.

Heage – a derivation of ‘High Edge’ – comes from the Anglo-Saxon Heegge meaning high, lofty and sublime. It perfectly describes Heage Windmill. Presiding over spectacular views towards the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, the windmill was lovingly restored in 2002 and looks as good as when first built in 1797. A Grade II* listed building, it is now a major Derbyshire attraction with a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Award and the only working six-sailed stone tower windmill in England. Heage Windmill opens to the public every Saturday and Sunday from 11 am until 4pm (Easter – end of October, including Bank Holidays) providing guided tours (each one around 45 minutes), where the guides – usually in costume – explain the mill’s history and how she works. - Derbyshire CC

This photograph is very much about composition, with the mill a tempting gem in the background. More details will emerge as the photographs are closer to the mill.

I cloned out some wires which showed in the sky and adjusted the levels.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
