SOME MILLS, MYTHS AND MEMORIES OF HIGHDOWN HILL
Peter R Stenning

Highdown Hill will be familiar to visitors and locals alike silhouetted against the northern skyline, with its commanding presence and crown of trees overlooking the ancient coastal villages of Goring and Ferring in West Sussex.
About the Author: As a small child, Peter was fascinated by John Olliver and his tomb, and as a teenager, became very interested in old windmills. When he left school he became apprentice with one of only two firms in Britain, at that time, who carried out restoration work on old mills.
He worked for this firm for a number of years, then left to join a local company of traditional stone-ground flour millers where he became the head millstone dresser. He also learnt a lot about milling and carrying 2cwt sacks of wheat. He left to become a journeyman millwright and worked for a firm in the Midlands, also working abroad on mills.
In the early 1970s he set up his own business and began working for museums and private customers. He later worked on windmills and watermills for the National Trust, county councils, and for commercial millers. In addition, he carried out some voluntary projects, working in more than a dozen counties.
He retired after spending more than 40 years on millwrighting work and has run every kind of mill to grind flour. His many other interests include the study of milling history and collecting mill memorabilia.
