This photograph of the old post mill at Gedney was taken in 1909 and comes from the South Holland Life archives.

The post mill is said to be the earliest type of European windmill: the whole body of the mill that houses the machinery is mounted on a single vertical post, around which the mill is turned to bring the sails into the wind.
