An Eighteenth Century Windmill, (built sometime in the 1730s) the Elphin Windmill originally ground wheat and barley from local farmers. After the end of the Napoleonic Wars, it was no longer required and left to decay, a ruin by 1837. Then in 1992 a local community group began the restoration process and it was officially reopened to the public on 22 June, 1996 by Gabriel Byrne, the Hollywood Actor.
