The earliest record of a windmill at Nutley appears in the Manor of Duddleswell Court Book dated 20th May 1836 in which James Wood is recorded as selling 'all that piece of land .... on which Henry Sitford has lately erected a windmill'.
It is possible that before 1836 the mill stood at Kilndown near Goudhurst where a mill 'disappeared' somewhere between 1710 and 1769. Certainly mills were moved across country, a famous local example being a post mill moved in 1797 from Regency Square, Brighton to Shaw Road, Preston by a team of 86 oxen.
