BOLNEY.

AN OLD LANDMARK GONE.

—Travellers the London to Brighton road will note the passing of the old windmill, which was situated near the Queen's Head Inn. For over a century it was prominent landmark, although it ceased working about 40 years ago. Its removal was brought about because it was considered unsafe. The two grinding stones have been placed in the footpath under the lychgate erected at Bolney Church in 1906 Mr. E. Huth, J.P.
