Halnaker, West Sussex
Halnaker Mill was built for the Goodwood Estate in the middle of the 19th century on top of Halnaker Hill - you can see the mill from the A27 as you drive eastwards from Chichester.
The windmill, which is 127 metres above sea level, has a commanding view of the Sussex coastal plain, but is very easy to walk up to from the A285 road. Halnaker Mill has had a slightly chequered history, being derelict for much of its quarter millennium of existence.
Currently the mill is in good shape externally, but inside there is nothing more than a hollow reminder of how things might have been in its heyday
