Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)Does anyone know anything about a windmill in Yardley Wod? I don't know anything about the Windmill but this is a picture of it.

There was also a wooden postmill nearby, Bach Mill, which stood at Windmill Road. This, too, may have belonged to the priory. By 1644 it had been replaced by a brick windmill in Coton Grove which continued to grind corn until c1890. Its buildings were demolished for housing development in

At one time this would probably have been in Worcestershire. Yardley Wood was attached to Yardley, once owned by Catherine of aragon.

For some years as a young lad I played around the wind mill until in the mid 50's when I watched (from the mill pond) as they dynamited it, as you can imagine as lads we thought the explosion was fantastic.
As for the location, I assumed it to be in Shirley, I was never sure.
