Cleadon Windmill

A miller's daughter fell in love with a local smuggler and they resolved to marry. Her father was already unhappy with the relationship and this fuelled his rage even more. He forbade her from the seeing the boy and told her fiancee not to visit her. She fell into a depression during which she climbed to the top of the mill and leapt off, wearing the red dress that she wore when seeing her boyfriend. Her ghost has been seen from time to time, still wearing her distinctive red clothing. Another version is that the daughter simply "slipped away" because of her depression. Her ghost in this version is said to be seen among the ruin and walks to the sea.
