Description

There was a song in the 60s called 'Windmill in Old Amsterdam', it featured imaginatively crafted lines such as 'A windmill with a mouse in and he wasn't grousin''.

Maybe not a Grammy award winner but a song that was a favourite amongst children for many years.

A favourite sight for most people not only in Amsterdam but anywhere in the country is a windmill. They are reminders of a bygone age when the pace of life was slower.

There are very few working examples now, so Broderstone's cast stone Windmill Garden Ornament will introduce a reminder of an time less complicated and stressful.

And that is exactly the relaxing atmosphere that most people seek in the sanctuary of their garden. 

Windmills used to be a common sight throughout the countryside with their sails blowing in the wind to drive heavy milling stones below.

However pretty the sight, the days of Dusty Miller turning freshly harvested wheat into flour are long gone. Windmills are now quite rare, especially those in full working order. 

So perhaps this Borderstone cast stone windmill can be used as a reminder of a slower bygone age, before the onset of the industrial revolution when the pace of life was more sedate.

Many people want to create that sort of ambiance in the sancturay of their garden and the Large Windmill Ornament can play an integral part in such a setting.

windmill garden ornament

Very attractive garden ornament, not very big, but blends nicely with the wishing well. Very neat and solid structure, I trust the plastic sails will withstand any strong winds.

Alan brown Asked:

Can you please tell me the height, width and depth of the windmill?

We Replied:

Dear Alan Thank you for your question. The windmill is 61cm high, but if you add the sail height on in the upright position it extends to 70cm. The windmill (excluding sails) is 30cm deep / wide at the widest point. The sails are heavy duty plastic, but light so they turn easily.

Walter Henshaw Asked:

Is the windmill already assembled or are the sails separate and have to be fitted?

We Replied:

Dear Walter Thank you for your question. The sails will have to be fitted but this is an extremely easy job that does not require a screwdriver as they are simply slotted in. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren

We live in a very windy area so will the sails be secure?

We Replied:

Dear Jackie Thank you for your question. The sails push into place and then are locked so there should be no problem. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren
