Post mill, Bocking

"Some time in the late 50s the sails were fixed in the St George's cross position and a prop with a triangular frame placed under the lowest one, as the mill's condition started to deteriorate. It was restored in 1964, after the danger of demolition." - Sue Burden

Bocking

Following storm damage in January 1978. "Pieces of wood had been placed in the bin floor to help try and stop the sails turning, presumably between the brake wheel spokes. The sails broke loose, and the pieces of wood were flung around, making holes in the roof and smashing up the fixtures. The Council had had sheets of polythene fixed over the worst holes- right side of the roof and right front gable (as seen). These quickly ripped apart and flapped. A little later the Council wired pieces of hardboard over most of the holes" - Sue Burden
The notice on the steps reads "Braintree District Council. Bocking- Windmill. Due to severe storm damage, the structure of the mill is considered unsafe, until such time as major repairs have been completed. PLEASE BEWARE. Loose and falling timbers."
