Was that the one near where the turbine is now? Still a bit of brickwork remaining

This is how the 'Centre Post' looks today (2nd October 2016). 

Picture 1 shows the old post - it is surviving quite well. 

Picture 2 shows the 'Centre Post' with the modern 'Glyndebourne Turbine' in the background.

The modern turbine is just over 200 feet tall and supplies power to the Glyndebourne Estate / Opera Complex.  Next to the original Mill Post, looking towards the turbine, is an information board / display which explains the history of the mill and the how the turbine works.
