West Blatchington Windmill

Holmes Avenue
Brighton & Hove BN3 7LE


West Blatchington Windmill was built circa 1820 on a tall flint and brick tower to which abutted barns on the north, south and west side. It was beautifully illustrated by John Constable in a watercolour dated 5th November 1825. The design is of the style known as a 'smock' mill due to the resemblance in silhouette to the garment worn by the millers and shepherds of that period.
