St Monans Windmill
St Monans in the East Neuk of Fife
St Monans Windmill in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland

These are the windmill and salt pans just to the east of St Monans.

The windmill was used to pump seawater into the salt pans and the heat to evaporate the water to leave the salt was provided by the plentiful supplies of coal, locally.

These photographs were taken in mid-July and this one was looking eastwards with Pittenweem just visible in the top left of the photograph .

Calling it a “wind-powered water pump” is a better description.

From the far side - looking westwards - the back door can be seen.

Moving a little closer in, both this photograph and the next one show the salt pans in more detail.
