Peter Greave's list of
Windmills is as follows:
1. Ypapanti aka
2. Loggos Kouares
3. Loggos Anemoyianni the last to operate in 1905
6. Lessiantis c1780 (+1 or 2 further south?). Now a scheduled monument.
7. St Nicholas aka pre 1818 as Kouvalias. (On the Island opposite Gaios)
8. Papa Sakiatis (where?? I believe near Gaios
9 Vellianitis c1700 in Lakka
By 1885 only 7 were still working and four of them were operating on horsepower. There are alleged to have been 16 windmills on the Island.
Once again, Salvator's book has contributed by supplying information of far more windmills than I (or Peter) formerly knew of. Some were ruins, even in his day 1884-5, and others had deminished to 'sites of'.
Interestingly, he talks also, of Watermills! I have gone into this in detail in the Booklet.
MINING. Also in earlier editions of the Booklet, I located, on FP46c, a mine/quarry where fine quality building stone was extracted. It seems, per Salvator, that this was a much more intensive and widespread industry on both Paxos and Anti-Paxos than I had realised. Again you can find more about this in the new edition Booklet with the known sites marked on the Map.
