Several years after I obtained the copies seen on the previous pages these two photographs came into my possession. These are original prints made from Mr Bramwell’s negatives, and fortunately are much clearer in detail than the copies. For example look a little to the left of the tall chimney above. Beneath the long scratch mark can be seen the Bear Windmill, just north of Bear Road. This is the only photograph I have ever seen of this mill, which was a white post mill, with round house, tail pole and cloth sails. It existed in 1770 and was pulled down in 1885.
