This is the tallest brick tower mill in the country and was built between 1824-1826. Due to its imposing height it makes an important contribution to the centre of the historic village of Moulton in Lincolnshire. Its sails were lost in a gale in the 1890s, but it retained all of its original machinery and the millers office remains to this day, in a remarkable state of preservation.

A conservation plan and a detailed schedule of architectural repairs and alterations were prepared by Anderson & Glenn. These documents formed an important part of an application for English Heritage and Heritage Lottery Fund grant aid. Substantial funding was awarded to the project, by both bodies, and the restoration work was finished in 2005.

The Anderson & Glenn design work included restoration of the brick tower and provision of suitable access for the disabled and a tea-room, kitchen and exhibition room in the former granary. This facility is open on a regular basis and it is an important part of the visitor experience.
When additional funds become available, new sails and a replacement gallery will be fitted.
