About me

Admin T-shirt.svg
Je suis Charlie.jpg

I live in Hadlow, Kent. My hobbies and interests include molinology, deltiology, civil aircraft, railways and Dutch. I have been researching the windmills, millers and millwrights of Norwich for a number of years. The results of my research can be found on the Norfolk Mills website. I have been an admin on Wikipedia since 26 September 2009. I have an alternate account for use when away from my own computer and not in need of admin's tools - Mjroots2.

I am (distantly) related to a number of Wikinotable people, including Jane Austen,[1] Frank Merrick,[2] Flora Twort,[2] Frederick Twort,[2] Henry Vane,[3] and William Vousden VC.[4]
