Last week was National Mills Weekend, when windmills across the country and around the capital threw open their sails to the public. Didn't know there were so many windmills in London? Take a look at the fine specimens above.

Thanks to the following photographers for use of their photos via the Londonist Flickr pool: dixon1919, fintanwest, Gábor Hernádi, helen.2006, Lee Jackson, LGEEography, Martin Griffett, Matt, Mike T, Owen Llewellyn, psyxjaw, stevekeiretsu.

Take a look at our other London photo galleries.
