I have just bought this copy of a photograph off
ebay. It is the best photograph I have seen of
Chalton windmill and dates from the early 1900s. I
have seen other photos of it in a similar condition
stated to date around that time. It ceased work in
the 1880s/1890s and was derelict by the 1930s.

The raised ground floor does not look particularly
easy to access and exit, though I suppose it was
about cart height. Note also the cellar window
hatches. Perhaps one day an earlier photograph will
turn up showing the mill in working order.
