This was an American style steel windmill which I thought Mike installed to pump water from Gundrys shaft on Speedwell (tin) mine to tanks up here which fed many houses/cottages on Prussia Cove estate by gravity, now on mains but can still be traced, windmill has fallen over. Mike T-B used to go down shaft on rope to unblock filter, even when he was 60!

Trenalls originally Trenalls Farm which was the name of the area before it became Prussia Cove, probably after the Carters smuggling family c1800, Harry Carter called himself "King of Prussia" after Frederick the Great, a hero of the time (like you'd call yourself Superman!)
