Lytham Windmill
By R Lee

This Tower mill was built  in 1805, on what is now Lytham Green, the Windmill is a prominent landmark that everyone sees when they visit Lytham.

One of several mills on the Fylde, Lytham Mill was worked until 1919 when a fire destroyed most of the machinery. It has been rebuilt and renovated several times since.

The Mill now houses a permanent exhibition of the history of the Mill and of Bread-making, tableaux of Lytham life during the last 100 years, various memorabilia and models.
