Martin Mill, Kent

Martin Mill is a village in east Kent, England. It takes its name from the nearby village of Martin. Martin Mill railway station is on the Dover to Deal railway line. The windmill which gives Martin Mill its name was operating commercially until about 1923 when Sydney Hogben, the owner and former operator, took it into his head to saw off the sails by his own hand. This caused outrage in the community and took the mill out of commission forever. The ruins were finally demolished in the 1960s.
