Euan Myles’s best photograph: The secret to happiness? Your own windmill
‘Nigel Moon spent 10 years restoring this 18th-century mill. By isolating himself from the modern world, he has found what many of us lack – contentment’
I’ve never met a man more content than Nigel Moon. He’s dedicated his whole life to the windmill where he lives and works. He has no modern technology – no computer, no television, not even a mobile phone until very recently – and he’s happier for it.
Nigel decided he wanted to become a miller when he was a small boy. He spotted his first windmill when he was out horse-riding through the Leicestershire countryside, and that was it. It was a childhood dream that he turned into a lifelong love affair.
