Skidby Windmill, East Yorkshire


Skidby Windmill is a historical landmark in the East Riding area of northern England.  It was originally built in the early 1820's and substantially modified a few decades later.  The windmill was initially used for grinding wheat into flour, although in the 20th century it was converted to making animal feed.  It ceased commercial operation in 1966, when it was believed to be the last operational windmill in England north of the Umber River.  Check it out from above in this drone video by jonathanrichards.
