A Windmill is a structure that converts wind power into rotational energy by means of vanes called sails or blades, specifically to mill grain (gristmills), but the term is also extended to windpumps, wind turbines and other applications. Windmills were used throughout the high medieval and early modern periods; the horizontal or panemone windmill first appeared in Greater Iran during the 9th century, the vertical windmill in northwestern Europe in the 12th century.

Stembridge Tower Mill in High Ham, Somerset, England, is the last remaining thatched windmill in England. The stone tower mill was built in 1822 with four floors & the thatched "cap". In 1894 a steam engine was installed & after the mill was damaged in a storm in 1897 or 1898 this became the sole source of power. Commercial use ended in 1910. The mill is now owned by The National Trust and underwent a £100,000 restoration in 2009 & was re-opened later in the year.
