Tower mill, Grateley

A Steam and Wind powered Corn mill in the historic county of Hampshire, England.

Built in the 1850s or 1860s. By 1882 a steam engine had been installed, and in 1889 the sails were removed. It was later worked by gas engine and then by a tractor. In 1920 the chimney of the steam engine was demolished and the cap was removed and replaced by a turreted roof. The mill was still used to grind cattle feed until 1960, after which it was used as a store until demolition in 1969.
