Volunteers help the windmill in many ways. It takes a lot of work and goodwill to maintain and preserve the windmill.  Members of the Friends of the Windmill work hard on raising funds with events throughout the year. National Mills Weekend on the second weekend in May is our biggest event at the mill with stalls, teas, plants and Windmill Tours. Click here to find out more about the volunteers.

In June 2017 volunteers removed the cogs from the brakewheel in preparation for fitting new cogs.

In March 2017, the volunteers found that the wedges in the brakewheel were not fitting closely.  They have been individually inspected and their profiles have been made to fit snugly together.

 

 

 

During 2014 volunteers have restored the smutter which is now on display on the meal floor.

The restoration of both smutter and fan was a team effort with individuals taking control of the various sections before reassembly.

The smutter with fan and spout was restored by Ray Burlton, Simon Allen, Michael Chapman and Rhys Clatworthy.

To find out more about the smutter please see the article in the Spring 2015 newsletter.
