The pictures on this page were supplied
by Mary Snell of Portland - Thanks Mary.
Below is the information that
Mary supplied with the pictures.
Regarding ownership of the land that
they stand on (Haylands) I would presume it belongs to Hanson's the Quarry
owners. The only mention of ownership of the windmills I can find is
in a book Portland Encyclopaedia written by Rodney Legg. It
mentions that they were originally owned by the Pearce family and probably
built in the 17th century. He also names them as, i.e. the windmill
covered in ivy (Northern Windmill) is called Angel Mill and
the other one, the other side of the field is called South Mill.
It is kind of you to accept my pictures
for your site, I hope people enjoy them.
