There are several windmills still standing in London. Mooch visited the Shirley Windmill which was built in 1854 to replace a previous windmill. This windmill is often open to visitors.
The windmill stands a long way above the modern houses.  (18-Sep-2011)

There are lots of mechanisms to move grain and flour around the mill, bag it and measure it.

Mooch made friends with the windmill's cat, but he thought the rats in the hopper were having too much fun!
