Alford Windmill Built In 1837



On the way home from the Lincolnshire coast, 
we had one of those moments when 
I requested (begged) Mr LOL to stop the car
 so I could take these photos :).









It is just beautiful but sadly it was closed.  We couldn't go inside to have a look.  If you click on the link, you can read all about this wonderful seven story, five-sail windmill - HERE. Alford is a lovely town about 13 miles from the Lincolnshire coast.













I have got the dentist later on this morning.  I am not sure what is wrong but I am in pain.  So I may have to take a few days off.  The plan...to be back very soon!  Cheers for now.

Windmills have a charm all their own. Just the other day I saw a TV program which showed a windmill that had been converted into a house...it was most interesting.

Hope that you visit to the dentist's chair was of help.

Nice Windmill, glad you managed to stop! Hope the tooth ache is now gone.

Sorry to hear about your problems Lauren. Hope it doesn't turn out too expensive.

I remember Alford windmill well, as I used to live at Sutton on Sea, which is just a few miles away. This was back in the 80s. I don't think its changed that much since then

Seven floors of fabulousness :) Love windmills, in fact we have one here that I often think about snapping. Hope your dental visit sorted out the problem, I was there today also. It must be horrible being a dentist, most people dread going to see them :))

Grace - I am giving you an assignment. Go photograph that windmill. I would love to see it :). You are so right about going to see the dentist. Six months ago I had an appointment and ended up in hospital rather than go to the dentist. A tad extreme. Mr LOL had to cancel my appointment from ambulance. I was all right in the end - just panicked. Did I feel silly or what!
