Langstone Mill is on the edge of the Chichester harbor.

Langstone Mill is on the edge of the Chichester harbor. The old mill, now a private residence, was a working mill until WWI. It is made up of three distinct parts, the mill itself built across a creek, built in 1800 – 1832, the mill store, built in 1800 – 1832 on brick piers and the oldest part, an attached windmill, built in 1720 – 1740. Barges could be brought up to the mill for transporting the milled goods away around the coast.

The mill operated two ten foot wheels, one set higher than the other to make full use of the stream feed and the tide, which was kept behind tide gates.

The black windmill is a distinctive feature of the landscape, its tarred outer skin resilient to the full force of the coastal weather.
