The Old Mill

A Memory of Bozeat

Can anyone remember the old windmill in a field just off Olney Road? It was blown down in a very strong gale in, I think, March 1948. I seem to remeber that 2 sisters by the name of Little, used to live in a house very close by. It was in the area where the original houses in Mill Road were built

The mill was owned by my great grandfather, John Little. While the windmill blew down before I was born, my mother (Diana Yates, nee Little) remembers it well. The two sisters in the house would be Elizabeth Maud Helen and Mabel Catherine Little; another sister Lilian Edith Pile (nee Little) lived there for a while. I have lots more details if you are interested. Allan. allan@yates.ca
