Additional description
One out of three windmills whose architecture was influenced by Estonian windmills. The other two are in Novgorod region: the mill from the village of Zaval and the mill from Ladoshchino in Vitoslavlitsy. These three windmills are the only windmills which are shingled, have specific round shaped cap and have a spur wheel as a wallower (instead of cage gear in other windmills). Unlike other two mills, windshaft here is not inclined thus wallower is not conical. Besides that there is no automatic sack hoist here.
