Member's Comments on Argos Hill...

  • Chris Pearson says...
  • The summit windmill (10 steps from the trig at top of a large garden) is at Feb 2015 undergoing major renovation by The Friends of Argos Hill Windmill, with lottery funding. I spoke to a scaffolder on site (with gates open) who explained it was a tricky shape to work on! The windmill has four patent sails (or "sweeps" as they are known in the South East). Each sail has 51 shutters which as the wind speed increases automatically open to allow the wind to spill through, which allows them to maintain a fairly constant speed. Patent sails are regarded as the pinnacle of windmill sail design. Nearby is Argos Hill Tunnel on the old railway (Cuckoo Line) which isn't really a tunnel but a skew bridge (a bridge that passes obliquely under or over a road) which was cut and covered rather than bored. It is however, underground, so it still gets listed on Subterranea Britanicca whose members study and investigate man-made and man-used underground places — from mines to railway tunnels, military defences to nuclear bunkers and everything in between.
