    Hi Ged

    I looked but did not see any of the Toxteth mill. Wrong page maybe?

    A picture which explains very well why windmills went out of use. In a windy week, a mill like Great Crosby would do well to fill two or three of the carts full of flour sacks in this photo of the Liverpool North Shore steam mills (and a small mill like Wavertree would do well to fill one). All the carts shown, combined, are carrying one day's output from North Shore [IMG][/IMG]

    Woolton windmill, built 1810, before and after the fire which gutted it in 1898
