The Museum of East Riding Rural Life at Skidby Mill mainly collects objects relating to rural and agricultural heritage of the East Riding, including the specialist Alex West collection of market gardening and agricultural implements.
Alan Gifford comments: "This is the earliest mention of a Tower mill at Heage contained in an advert in the Derby Mercury 16th June 1791 . Note that it refers to 'Materials laid down on site' - stone for tower was in adjacent quarry."
View over Faringdon from Faringdon Hill, with Badbury Hill behind the town, and Lechlade, Cricklade and Cirencester in the distance. There is a windmill on Badbury Hill, and the various places of worship in Faringdon are denoted by numbers.
The view is taken from higher ground, with the church in the centre and a windmill to the right (possibly East Challow mill?). The print is engraved by J. C. Varrall and is based on a drawing by G. Shepherd, for "The Antiquarian Itinerary."
