CLAYTON MILL LANE 1. 5405 Clayton Windmills and the Millhouse attached TQ 31 SW 23/45 28.10.57 II* 2. Two complete windmills, the remains of a third and the millhouse adjoining. The 2 complete windmills are always known as "Jack and Jill". "Jill" is the older and dates from 1821. This is a post mill that was moved to this site from Dyke Road, Brighton, about 1850. Round house of tarred weather-boarding. Roof and breasts covered with sheets of metal. Sweeps without shutters. Fantail missing. Machinery intact. "Jack" is a tower mill dating from 1866. It is built of brick, faced with metal plates, tarred. Gallery above ground floor. Beehive cap with finial. Framework for the fantail complete. Main sweeps missing. The roof construction is a skilful example of a spheroid framing covering. "Jack" is joined to the adjoining mid C19 millhouse of one storey, which is stuccoed, and to the ground floor of a third mill, older than "Jill" which was called Duncton mill. This is the round house of a mid C18 post mill taken down in 1866. All 3 together are occupied as a dwellinghouse.
