On the way to Skegness we went through the town of Boston (not the New England Boston) but the original Boston in Lincolnshire which dates back to 1545. Whilst passing through the town I saw a large Windmill. On the way back from Skegness we all decided to stop and go for a coffee and check out the Maud Foster Windmill. It is one of the largest operating windmills in England and was built in 1819 at the cost of around £1826 or around $3700 USD (which was a large sum in those days). I climbed the narrow ladders up the seven floors right to the top, it is very interesting, a good afternoon out especially for families with younger (under 12) children.
The local town to Clew Bay is Newport so we decided to have a quick look around at the shops which we had driven past as we headed toward Bartraw Beach. The river in the photo below is the Brown Oak River which flows right through the towns centre.
