The author's interest in windmills reaches back well over ten years and culminated in Yorkshire Windmills, published in 1991, and the foundation of the Yorkshire Windmill Society. A reviewer in the Yorkshire Archaeological Journal wrote that Yorkshire Windmills was 'clearly a labour of love ...and the author has made a substantial investment of time and there is no doubt the reader can benefit from the wealth of references collected'. Now, ten years on, further research and losses have created a need for a new work on the subject. However, the idea of this book is to illustrate some of the remaining windmills of Yorkshire without too much preamble, and where possible to revise errors and omissions in the earlier volume. But this is not a scholarly book; this is first and foremost a pictorial celebration and record of these tyke towers for the avid amateur historian and informed reader.
