Tyne and Wear HER(8407): South Shields, windmill - Details
South Shields, windmill
Wind Power Site
Richardson's plan of South Shields and Westoe dated 1768 shows a "Mill Field". A plan of the estate of Robert Stote, also dated 1768, shows "Fairles's Ground" and a windmill belonging to the Corporation of Newcastle. It is still shown on Fryer's map of 1772 but within land owned by the Dean and Chapter of Durham. Seems to have gone by 1827.
