More about this scene

Many windmills have now disappeared, and have been superseded by electric pumps. Hunsett Mill, near the top of the Ant, was constructed to drain the waterlogged ground to enable agricultural crops to be grown. It is still a popular landmark, though now accessible only through private property. The man on 'Rangoon' has moored his pleasure cruiser and balances his tripod and camera on the cabin roof to photograph the lovely old mill.
