A film that showcases the removal of the Lowfield Heath windmill, a post mill with a single storey roundhouse, from the Gatwick area to Charlwood, Surrey.


This amateur colour film documents the careful dismantling of the windmill section by section, using manpower and machinery before being moved and transported to Edolphs Copse, at Russ Hill in Charlwood by the Lowfield Heath Windmill Trust.
