MONUMENT NO. 369030

DESCRIPTION + /

Windmill mound surviving as earthwork within Wimpole Park. A post-mill is shown at this location on a map of 1638 but subsequently fell into disuse. An icehouse was inserted into the mound in the late 17th or early 18th century, shown on a design plan for the North Park by Robert Greening, circa 1752 and again on Robert Withers' map of the Park, circa 1815. Thereafter the mound was planted with trees as a feature in the Park. The mound is visible on 2008 lidar and was mapped as part of the NAIS South West Cambridgeshire Project.
