Tyne and Wear HER(1693): Shieldfield, windmill - Details
Wind Power Site
The first evidence for this windmill is on a map dated 1746 but it is probably much older. Eventually it became a mill for the crushing of clay for use by an adjacent brick and tile business (HER ref. 4143). It stood at the corner of what later became Shield Street and Camden Street close to where Lort House stands today.
