Stembridge Mill: Stembridge Tower Mill in High Ham, Somerset, England is the last remaining thatched windmill in England. It is the last survivor of five windmills that once existed in the area.

A Tower Mill is a type of windmill which consists of a brick or stone tower, on top of which sits a roof or cap which can be turned to bring the sails into the wind. The advantage of the tower mill over the earlier post mill is that it is not necessary to turn the whole mill ('body',' buck') with all its machinery into the wind; this allows more space for the machinery as well as for storage.
