Bullerthorpe Lane, Swillington Mill
7th September 2000 Looking west towards Swillington Mill showing the derelict mill building, partially obscured by undergrowth. To the right is a derelict house. The mill is situated off Bullerthorpe Lane.

In this image, the conical shell of the old windmill, seems ripe for The National Trust, English Heritage, or some other worthy body to restore, and save it for posterity. Old maps show 'Swillington Corn Mill' sitting on Colton Common. Does it still do so? Or have the ever ravenous, insatiable jaws of 'development' devoured it?

I think part-if not all-of the mill has been incorporated into the development that's now there.
