Remnants of the rural landscape of Barnet Gate are still found among the private houses in the area. The Windmill is an early C20th Arts and Crafts style house in landscaped grounds adjacent to a preserved disused windmill with a circular tower. The Arkley Windmill was built between 1822 -40 and was in use until 1916; it was repaired in 1930 and 1974. Nearby a timber-framed barn of 1788 is in the grounds of another private house. This 3-bay timber-framed building with weather-boarding and a tiled room was used to store grain before it was milled at Arkley Windmill.
