It seems clear from these pictures that Bessler had completed the stone work which forms the base for the windmill, and the upper floors were added later by subsequent owners. One might conclude that the inventor fell from the top of the existing stone work, although it is possible that he had already begun construction of the upper parts of the windmill in timber and that that was removed later and therefore he could have fallenl from a greater height than suggested by the present stone work.
