The depiction of watermills and windmills in art and illustration enables us to look beyond the technology and explore what these buildings meant to the people who built and used them. Sometimes they provide a valuable record from times when no other illustrative evidence survives. Since the late 1970s Martin Watts has worked full time on researching, repairing and conserving water- and wind-powered machinery.
