Brighton windmills

From The Brighton Toy and Model Index

The Brighton area used to be packed with windmills, so much so that the boundary of Lewes was actually partly defined by points corresponding to certain known mills.

Lewes:

From the Town Mill on the North western Side of the Town in a straight Line to the Smock Windmill, which is the most southerly of the Two Windmills called "the Kingstone Mills"; thence in a straight Line to the Point at which the boundary of the Parish of Southover crosses the Cockshut Stream; thence along the Cockshut Stream to the Point at which the same joins the River Ouse; thence the River Ouse to the Point at which the same would be cut by a straight to be drawn from the Point last described to the Point on the Eastern Cliff known as the Scite of an old Windmill; thence in a straight Line to the said point on the Eastern Cliff; thence in a straight Line to the Windmill called "Malling Mill"; thence in a straight Line to the Point at which the Stream which turns the Paper Mill falls into the River Ouse; thence in a straight Line to the Town Mill.
