that windmill is absolutely gorgeous!! Stunning.
Back in my old stomping ground again! Have you climbed to the top of the windmill?
Oh very beautiful! :) Happy WW!
Scene of many a boring school trip :-(How do teachers suck all the joy out of history?
The tithe barn is very intriguing. Easy to see that taxes were a lot bulkier back then! I would have been the one annoying kid in Chris's boring school trip that would have loved the tithe barn.Happy WW!
Very cool! I think it would make a fascinating trip! Happy WW :)
Can a windmill work with just two sails? This is a neat place. I wish I could hook up my house to it somehow!
Very cool! You always find such interesting places.
Fabulous!The windmill being my favorite of course...
that would be an interesting place to visit. wonderful shots!
I would love to visit here. They are indeed beautiful. Have a great WW. :)
Lovely pictures! I too am fond of the windmill--and I bet the museum is fascinating. Happy WW!
Great pictures. :)
I'd love to visit that place someday. Wonderful photos.
I really love the "Upminster Tithe Barn, built in 1450" pic... I think it is more the shape of the building...Happy WW, and thanks for stopping by...
I really love the photography on this blog. Well done. These shots look like 'classic' England to this Yank.
Great photos. The barn as a museum seems like a great place to visit. I do love how you've chosen to show the photos.
THanks everyone. Alison I have been to teh top of the windmill. It's worth seeing inside. It;s a shame that some teachers can take the joy out of a subject, Chris.
Those are some great pictures. I love the windmill one! Happy WW

Pretty cool windmill. Everytime I see photos of windmills it reminds me of Holland, with women in wooden shoes. I just don't know why.Mine is up too.
I love the Tithe Barn. I've never seen one before.happy WW!
Great pics...I love the windmill and the black and white are totally cool. Happy WW.
I come from Dutch people, of course I love windmills.They have a lot of power generating windmills set up across the Texas countryside now. It's pretty interesting to watch.
The windmill is more than 200 yrs old. Is it still working? I would love to go up the windmill.
Love the classic effect. Btw, would you mind if I'll link you in my blog?
I love photo number 2! Great shots!
My first thought was "shall I tilt at it?"

How lovely :-) I haven't seen that many windmills, but there's always something gorgeous about them.

You always have the coolest pictures! Love the windmill especially!
I love to visit England anyway I can. Thanks for my visit today...
So much history! Imagine how many people have been there through the centuries.
The Tithe barn would be really interesting to go through and find out the history and how that worked. My WW shows a great example of how to humiliate your teens on the internet, lol.
Wow, 1450? I do not think there is anything near that old where I live. But I am not sure.
Wow Jams - nice pics! I love historical buildings, and adore thatched roofs. Great subjects for a WW, well done!
Great pics! The most interesting ones I've seen today.My Wordless Wednesday~Douglas-=-The Splintered Mind - Overcoming Neurological Disabilities With Lots Of Humor And Attitude
I didn't know that there were windmills in the UK, although now I remember to have seen one in Sussex when I was there in August. We have quite a lot here in Belgium especially near the dutch border.
Travelling around the US I always liked the windmills that were used to irrigate land. Remote monuments in flat land.
Thanks all. I like the way you put that Colin. You see a few similar windmills in the fens of East Anglia.
Wow, what interesting photos, and a little bit of history to boot!
1450 is unbelievable and it looks like a wooden building. We are proud of our old dates in New England yet we have no dates like that. Your history is so fascinating and deep.
