TVAS North Midlands: Site Update- Windmill cottage, Chellaston, Derbyshire
TVAS North Midlands has been excavating the remains of an 18th century windmill in Chellaston.
While the initial investigation was an evaluation the walls of the windmill were uncovered and the excavations extended.
The excavations revealed at least 1m of the walls remaining and also showed the remains of outbuildings and the floors. While there was a lack of contemporary finds for the construction of the windmill, the walls correlated with what was known of the windmill.
