Stembridge Tower Mill in High Ham, Somerset, England, is the last remaining thatched windmill in England. The stone tower mill was built in 1822 with four floors & the thatched "cap". In 1894 a steam engine was installed & after the mill was damaged in a storm in 1897 or 1898 this became the sole source of power. Commercial use ended in 1910. The mill is now owned by The National Trust and underwent a £100,000 restoration in 2009 & was re-opened later in the year.

The women broke down the factory's gates and forcibly expelled the scabs, while the men who accompanied them kept the police at bay.
