The Inglewood Windmill

This forge made windmill is from Inglewood, South Australia. The maker is unknown. He appears to have made at least two different windmills and may have made others. Some of the metal used to make the windmill is obviously second-hand, for example, the strapping around the tail.

This historic photograph (below) of a blacksmith's shop was taken close to where the windmill was collected from and may have been where it originated, though this is only supposition.

This photograph of a wooden tower (left) was also taken in the same general area from where the windmill was collected and the design would suit the Inglewood windmill, but again this is only supposition and further information is required before it can be taken as fact.
