The location of this windmill, on high ground a few miles south of the county town of Worcester, was notoriously windy and thus an ideal site for a mill. In the 19th century, windmills were being made redundant by the bigger, new steam-driven mills. Hence Turner was recording a rapidly disappearing feature of the English agricultural landscape. This mill was demolished 20 years after the photograph was taken.
