Upminster Windmill Sails to be mounted tomorrow

Exciting news, the Upminster Windmill Sails are due to be mounted tomorrow.

Here are the details, provided by Upminster Windmill:

BREAKING NEWS: CAP AND SAILS WILL BE INSTALLED ON UPMINSTER WINDMILL ON MONDAY!

We are delighted to announce that the cap and sails will be lifted into position on Monday 30 November 2020.

This is the culmination of four years’ intensive restoration work by our Dutch millwrights – Willem Dijkstra and Douwe Akkerman. The cap will be lifted with two sails attached.

The lifting of the cap will take place during the morning, probably between 10:00 and 12:00, though it could be an hour or so earlier. The remaining two sails will probably be installed in the afternoon. We will post updates on our Facebook Page from around 08:00 and throughout the day.

The field will be open to pedestrians though national guidelines still require that no more than two people meet outside. If you attend please maintain social distance.
