The following building shall be added: SJ 59 SW ST HELENS RAVENHEAD ROAD 455-/8/10003 Part of Nos 96 and 98 Former Windmill Tower, Ravenhead II Windmill tower. Probably late C18, with early C19 alterations, and later removals. Tapering circular brick tower, brickwork laid to garden wall bond, with flat roof and C20 metal ladder giving access to roof. Cap sails, and machinery removed. Three storeys, the middle (first) floor with three 9 paned sash windows beneath segmental brick arches. The lower tower body is now enclosed within later C19 housing, (Nos 96 and 98). The mill was associated with Ravenhead Plate Glassworks, of 1773, and is shown as one of two windmills within the Glassworks in Sheriffs map of 1816. The association with the glassmaking process may represent a change of function from grain milling.
