The Burwell Windmill is currently being restored by the team at Burwell Museum. A Ladderstore ladder has provided safe and easy access to the top of the mill.
"We needed a ladder to provide safe and easy access to the cap of the windmill we are restoring. As the cap is curved, we needed a bent ladder to suit. Those who have used it so far have been very pleased with how much easier it makes working on the top of the mill" said Colin Marshall of Burwell Museum & Windmill.
Set among beautifully preserved historic farming buildings, Burwell Museum tells the story of a bustling fen-edge village. Alongside the 19th-century mill, displays from the everyday to the amazing vividly recreate Burwell life over the ages.
Stevens’ Mill is Burwell’s only surviving mill and was built around 1820 for local miller Oliver Carter. A generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund restored the mill. The cap, fantail and mill machinery were repaired, the wooden floor restored, and external render repaired and repainted.
"Let me say how impressed I was at every step (sorry) of the procurement process of our ladder. Every bit of the service was friendly, efficient and effective, and every promise made was kept and in many ways exceeded. It has been a real pleasure to deal with you, and I am now trying to invent further reasons for coming back to you."
