Probably 1793 for Thomas, Marquis of Bath, on an earlier site; converted to dwelling 1926 when tower was heightened and sails and machinery removed; late C20 extension of single storey to South is not of special interest. Coursed and squared rubble, colourwashed, parapet with coping, squat brick chimney. Slightly tapering tower, circular on plan. Four storeys, one and 2-light metal casements to each floor with glazing bars. Door opening to East, studded plank door. Primarily included because of a very prominent position in the landscape; some historical importance. (A.J. Coulthard and M. Watts, Windmills of Somerset and the men who worked them, 1978).
