Luís Graça & Camaradas da Guiné: Guiné 63/74 - P10120: Os nossos seres, saberes e lazeres (47): Festa do pão do moinho, 1 de julho de 2012, Atalaia, Lourinhã (Parte I): O som inconfundível do vento a soprar nas velas, nos mastros, nas cordas e nos búzios dos moinhos da minha terra, acompanhou-me desde sempre, desde a minha infância até Bambadinca..., tal como o cheiro, o sabor, a cor e a textura do pão, feito com a farinha do moleiro... Desculpem-me a fra(n)queza!... (Luís Graça)

Bishopstone tide mills, near Newhaven c1883. There was a watermill on this site since Domesday times and the first specific mention of a windmill in Sussex was at Bishopstone in 1190,but this example dated from 1778,with the Windmill being added later in the 1860s to work the sack hoist. Despite the size of the mill it was nevertheless unable to compete with the new power mills and was closed down in 1890 and demolished in the First World War,although parts survived until the late 1940s.
