Lacey Green Windmill

Lacey Green Windmill
With a twisted and tilted body, England’s oldest smock mill was about to fall down after three proud centuries of displaying its industrial strength.

But thanks to a 15-year restoration effort led by the bouncing bomb inventor's son, the Lacey Green Windmill in Buckinghamshire is back to its best.

The mill was falling down in the 1970s when a team of volunteers decided to return it to its former glory, which prompted a mammoth restoration effort.

This work to restore the mill - which stands halfway between High Wycombe and Aylesbury - was led from 1971 by Christopher Wallis, who died in 2006.

He was the son of Sir Barnes Neville Wallis, who invented the bouncing bomb used in the Second World War Dambusters raid in Ruhr, Germany, in 1943.

Mr Wallis Jr worked on more than 20 windmills and was a British Railways engineer in 1969 when he studied the mill and realised it could still be saved.
