Crecy style European Windmill
- base 23cm (9") x 15cm (6"), windmill main body width 8cm (3"), depth 5cm (2"), height to apex of roof 20cm (8")
Here we have a typical example of a windmill from the Middle Ages.
This type of design is suitable for most northern European settings including the 100 Years War – the windmill at Crecy for example, up to and beyond the wars of the 17th century.
The sails are removable for storage and extra details include barrels, provisions and access ladder.
An alternative design for this could have a tiled or planked roof.
The underside of the base is covered in felt.
