For Better or the Worse…..


Heage 6 Sail Windmill, Derbyshire

For better or worse, this year’s Harvest should be safely in.   The weather has been, let’s just say strange and unpredictable this year.  Reports sound as if overall it has not been anywhere near a bumper crop of cereals.

The magnificent Heage Windmill with its 6 sails is in full working order.  Lovingly restored with challenging work for volunteers and fund raisers…..  a true labour of love.

In none CV19 times it is open to the public.  Then it is worth taking a step back in history to view a Windmill, which just like the Harvest, is dependent upon the weather.  The name Heage is derived from the Ango Saxon word  Heegge  which became ‘High Edge’…. easy to understand as you stand beside the mill on top of a high hill. 🙂

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

      1. Some of it is associated with a La Nina. They think it might be like 2008 when even Southern England counties had snow in October! I’ve been getting my warm clothing – and the garden – ready 🙂
