The Windmill, Lytham St. Annes

It’s strange how perceptions change. There had been a windmill on the seafront at Lytham St. Annes since the 1830s but when the town was being gentrified in the 1860s, the new residents objected to this industrial eyesore spoiling their view. Later, the mill suffered a major fire and years of dereliction but now, having been restored and turned into a museum, it is a unique and very attractive feature between the houses and the sea that no-one would object to.
