Smiffy, looking at the trade card compared to the photo I have, the trade card might be the earlier mill, burned down in 1836, as the Field family owned both.  There are a few significant differences, although both are smock mills.

The base on the trade card is hexagonal, whereas the base on the photo is square, and the smock body flush to it, much like the mill at Delce.


It could, I guess, just be artistic license but if the trade card could be dated pre-1836 then I have pics of both mills in succession.

I've got that one Smiffy, and a fine photo of it as well, which will be in a book eventually (if I ever write it)

This looks to be an advert or a trade flyer given out to customers or potential customers. The Mill was sited at the top of Chalk Pit Hill near the junction of what is now Albert Road.
