This is a windmill at Bursledon, Southampton. It is the only working windmill in the county of Hampshire, UK, and is currently undergoing maintenance. It is hoped that the restoration will be complete in 2014,when the mill celebrates its 200th anniversary. Visitors are able to see flour being produced at Bursledon windwill, and view the other vintage farm buildings on the site, as well as the nature reserve.This was painted in the winter of 2012 in oils on a canvas measuring16" x 20". The image is quite timeless in a way, with nothing from the 20th century in the scene.
