The sails and millstones of Lytham’s windmill could be turning again by summer 2014 in a £500,000-plus plan to upgrade it into a working museum.
The famous windmill and the former RNLI boathouse will both be refurbished and modernised in a Lytham Heritage Group project that aims to more than double visitor numbers to approximately 60,000 per year.
A Lancashire landmark, the Lytham windmill, is being restored to its former glory.
It was built by the Squire of Lytham in 1805 and lost two of its sails last winter during strong winds.
Specialist craftsmen have been called in to make new sails which are being installed this week
