There is so much history around the old City Docks, I did not get much just to experience it all. Before we were on our way to the Isle Of Wight.

The Bembridge windmill is so quaint It is a wind powered mill, built around 1700, with original wooden milling machinery on 4 floors. We paid our entrance fee of £5.50, as we are not members of the National Trust. We went into the windmill and its has been left as it was. So there are two very steep ladders to the second floor, where I got my last two pictures, from small windows. Its so unique.
