Sleaford Explorer Trail – Clue 8

The Clue

Walking through the yard you’ll see the remaining tower of Money’s Mill; a Grade II Listed windmill which was built in the early 1790’s and was used to mill corn.

The Question

What colour is the windmill tower painted?

Hint

The mill does not have any sails left on it. Look for a round tower-like building.

 

The tower can be found in the middle of Money's Yard Car Park.

If you are really stuck the answer can be found below. Please do not scroll any further unless you wish to see the answer.

The Answer

The mill tower is black. It is Grade II Listed and dates back to 1796. It was once a corn mill built there to be close to the Sleaford Navigation Canal. It still stands at around 70 feet tall, towering over most surrounding buildings.
