It’s difficult to write about restoring a windmill without using a few technical terms! We try to explain them in the relevant blog entries, but if we’ve forgotten, the diagram below may help you sort out your sweeps from your stocks.

The diagram comes from Windmills in Lambeth by Michael Short. The book is now out of print, but there are copies in Lambeth libraries and Lambeth Archives.
