We may never know for sure. Make up your own mind ➡
Outwood

Mountnessing

If its supposed to be either I don't think its absolutely accurate.

It would be nice if you'd introduce yourself in the Welcome Forum 😉

Chris Nevard thinks it's Pitstone near Ivinghoe, see here (scroll down to just below his workbench with roofing tiles being cut - worth checking out for the super job he has done on painting and weathering).

It's very similar to the Mountnessing mill, except the mill itself has a polygonal rather than circular base. I would think the model design is somewhat generic in nature.

Its odd (actually its spooky) that this is the model I picked out of the stash on Friday to build whilst snowed in by storm Emma. I chose it as I wanted to build a scenic base and experiment with weathering powders and static scatter grass (having made a DIY static applicator from a fly squatter). Considering the age of the mould and the fact that I'm using a Dapol one (re-cycled plastic et al) its been a fairly easy build, although opening up and thinning down the frames on those multi pane windows was a bit of a nause.
