Windmill Windows

Windmill Windows in Accoya® Timber

We have just installed four new windows in the historic Muston Mill at Filey.  We often work on old and historic buildings, but this is the first time we have made new windows for a windmill; so we were really pleased to undertake the work. 

The current mill structure was built circa 1850 but written evidence indicates windmills have stood at this location since the 14th century.  You can find lots of interesting information about Muston Mill on the owners’ website.  We wish the owners every success in restoring their mill to its former glory and look forward to eventually seeing the renovated building.  

Traditional Craft Skills

Ornate Window Top for Listed Building

The above image shows the top of a huge window during the manufacturing process at our joinery workshop.  The top is part of a special ornate window for a Grade II* listed building.  Grade II* buildings are of special interest and only 5.5% of all listed buildings fall into this category.  We combine skilled people, traditional methods, and quality materials when making our windows.  It gives us great pleasure to see something beautiful emerging from the planks of timber that form the basis of our craft.
