As someone who really doesn't like heights this was a case of taking a deep breath and not looking down too much whilst climbing up. It was worth the effort and the views were interesting. Although the mill was abandoned in 1987 or thereabouts, the end silo has been retained and is now used to house a range of telecommunications masts.
