Visiting the Windmill


The Windmill at Windmill Hill


Transformed from a neglected ruin to a working mill…..

What you can see and do

  • Visitor centre with information panels, photographs and displays
  • Introductory film
  • Guided tours
  • Activities for children
  • Accessible visitor centre
  • There are long, steep stairs to the upper floors of the windmill which some people will be unable or unwilling to climb. We have a virtual tour in the roundhouse for these visitors.

We do not charge for entrance, but we suggest a donation of £5.00 per adult to help us meet our target of £10,000 each year to run and maintain the mill.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
