SP5ONE WHEATLEY WINDMILL LANE (North side) 1/240 Wheatley Windmill 18/07/63 - II Windmill. Mid C18. Limestone rubble with squared quoins. Octagonal plan. Tower has 3 storeys with openings at each level on 4 sides, all with brick segmental arches with stone keyblocks. The masonry is heavily patched with brickwork. Circular top formerly held an ogee copper-clad cap, now dismantled. Interior: Much of the structure and machinery survives. Cast on the boss of the windshaft is "EAGLE/OUNDRY/ 1784". A drive shaft survives which served an external ochre-grinding mill. The windmill was rebuilt in 1763 after a fire and was last used about 1920 when it was struck by lightning. It is said to be one of only 3 windmills remaining in the county. (V.C.H.: Oxfordshire, Vol. V, p.109).
