‘AS LONG AS THE WINDMILL’S SAILS TURN, THERE IS A BALANCE IN MY WORLD’… so says Agnieszka Rzepka who enjoyed her visit to our windmill recently and sent us the photo above. Here are her words in full:
‘While living in the Netherlands for 6 years, I totally fell in love with windmills over there. Now living on this small island, I’m trying to visit as many of the windmills as I can – they make me a bit less home-sick. Heage Windmill – with its unique 6 sails structure, well preserved mechanism and hilarious guide (thanks, Tim) definitely put a smile on my face. It seems that as long as the windmill’s sails turn, there is a balance in my world.’
