Last time I was home in Warwickshire son no.1 and I had a couple of days out to see what we could see. I fancied having a closer look at Chesterton Windmill as I’ve been driven past it since I was knee high to a grasshopper, yet never convinced anyone – and trust me I’ve tried – to go and and have a look at it, but son no.1 jumped at the idea, so off we went.
The windmill is truly beautiful both in the distance and close up. It was built in the 17th century, about 1632 and stands high on a hilltop, near the Fosse Way, a Roman road that links Exeter to Lincoln, approx 230 miles long. (That would make an interesting mini holiday wouldn’t it – forget Route 666, lets do the Fosse Way!)
just us two.
