Hertfordshire University Press just published an interesting book about the history of windmills in our county. Entitled ” Wind , Water and Steam” it was written by Hugh Howes. It is, as they say, available through all good bookshops and I can thoroughly recommend it. If you are interested, you can find more information on : http://www.herts.ac.uk/uhpress/books-content/wind,-water-and-steam
It reminded me of my first foray in the subject of local history when, in 2009, I helped my mother in law write and publish an article about the windmill that once stood on the corner of Broadfields and High Wych Road. My rewrite will take into account information from Hugh Howes’s book as well as an article written by Gary Thorp in the early nineties. Watch this space!
Meanwhile why not buy a copy of “Wind, Water and Steam”.
