The Post Mill in Foston, Lincolnshire, north-east England, was built in 1624 and is believed to have worked at two separate sites in the village before going out of use at the end of the 19th century. It was sadly demolished in 1966.

Foston is around nine kilometres (six miles) north-west of the town of Grantham.

Stickney Windmill

The five-storey Tower Mill in Stickney was built in 1842 and worked until the late 1960s. In the last few years powered though by electricity rather than wind. In its prime the mill had four patent sails driving three pairs of stones on the second floor, with a further pair of millstones on the first floor driven by engine. The tower still stands and is now used as a store by a nearby engineering works. No milling machinery survives internally.
