Brill Windmill Book

Many Haddenham residents will have taken a trip to see and explore the 17th Century windmill on Brill Common.

So, it may be of interest to learn that Tim Andrew (a professional freelance photographer) is in the process of publishing an attractive hardback photographic book about this ancient British windmill, its restoration and its place in the local community.

Apparently Tim's book has come to fruition through a crowdfunding project and has been a few years in the making, but is now ready for launch and looks amazing.

£1 for every book purchased will be going to the Brill Windmill maintenance fund. The village bought the Windmill from the local council last year and needs to maintain it.

You can advance order copies of the book via Tim's 'Kickstarter' page, where you will also be able to watch a video that explains more.
