BRITONS are blown away by windmills – which beat castles, stately homes and even cathedrals as the UK’s favourite buildings.

They got 45 per cent from voters polled while lighthouses come second with 40 per cent, followed by castles and pubs.

The survey found nostalgia plays a big part in a building’s appeal, with happy memories the main reason for being attached to places. More than half of us would make a special trip to see a favourite building, says the poll by masonry paint specialists Sandtex.
