Patcham Windmill

"Good morning Windmill!"

by Jan Lank

"This is a photo of Patcham windmill. It's special to me because I've passed it every school day since my son started school, approximately seven years ago. We used to say 'Good morning, Windmill!' on the way to school, and 'Good afternoon, Windmill!' on the way back.

It was used on my first school's crest, Patcham Infant's School, and the district of Withdean grew up beneath it.."

It is also depicted in the badge of Westdene School. The mill at Rottingdean is the logo of the publishers Heinemann. Have any other local mills been depicted in art (or commerce)?

Did you know that Mr. Musgrove left the windmill 15 years ago? I am the current owner and have lived here since Mr Musgrove left. Unfortunately it is not open to the public.

I visited the mill when it was open for cream teas in the 1950s.
