Lytham: windmill & lifeboat house

Another fab outing.

In the morning we explored Lytham Windmill and settled near things that caught our eye, to draw them.  Stuart found the cogs and technical workings on the first floor interesting and Angie, Dorothy & Brian found different things from the many exhibits in the basement. I spent a happy hour or so going up & down stairs to see what was happening! 

In the afternoon we drew the outside of the windmill before being allowed into the Old Lifeboat House which was brilliant.  The building itself was fascinating which houses a restored open lifeboat, 30ft long x 10 ft wide (sorry I missed all the technical details) artefacts, roles of honour, old equipment etc etc ...

Both buildings are worth a visit. 

Thank you Lytham Heritage Group, not only for letting us in the windmill as a group and opening the Lifeboat House for us but also for the work you do looking after, researching and sharing our heritage.  It greatly appreciated.  

Images of the day are below.
