Tim Whiting started out in 1998 running a cabinet making business in the grounds of Friston windmill in Suffolk, where in 2005 he met the late Vincent Pargeter who was one of the last of the old school traditional millwrights in the UK. Tim spent 5 years working alongside Vincent working on many aspects of the craft and opened Suffolk millwright in 2011 and has proudly worked almost entirely on windmills ever since.
Suffolk Millwright has been privileged to work on some beautiful mills across the UK and has completely restored,
For the National Trust, Horsey Windpump.
For the Norfolk Windmill Trust, Billingford Windmill.
For English Heritage, Saxtead Green Post mill
For Kent County Council, Chillenden Post mill
We have ongoing projects from as high up as new sails for Skidby mill in Yorkshire, and as far down as the new cap and sails for Guernseys St Savior mill in Perelle Bay.
In all, we are involved with over 30 UK mills from consultancy advise to regular maintenance works
