Heckington Windmill is the only 8-sailed tower windmill still standing in the United Kingdom. It was built in 1830. In 1891 a Mr John Pocklington of Wyberton mill had bought the eight-sailed mill cap with gear of the 78-year-old defunct Tuxford's mill (built in 1813) at auction. He came across the wrecked Heckington mill, & from 1891 -1892, he fitted the white onion-shaped & fantail-driven Tuxford's Mill cap to the Heckington Mill & set it working for the following 54 years.
