Friendly guide, delightful views. Fascinating insight into how flour was produced. Wish the refreshments were more interesting!

Nothing special , it's just a windmill. and not out of the ordinary, not worth going out of your way for unless you have never seen a windmill.

I love this restored and working windmill and try to visit it in differing weathers - the best picture I ever got of this was when a nearby rape field was in full bloom and the white of the mill sails stood out so well against the yellow - I was quite proud of the results. I have managed to... More

We made a spontaneous visit to the Windmill on Sunday and were treated to an impromptu 'out of hours' tour - and had a fantastic time! Not only historically educational but also truly inspiring to see the present-day work local volunteers do to keep the place open and in working order. A genuine local - and national - treasure. Thanks... More

Went on an open day and was treated at best with polite indifference and that is best I can say.of a complete waste of time, have been to other mills where the people there are full of enthusiasm and proud of their mill.

A very valuable piece of local history, and fascinating to climb inside and watch the mill operating and milling flour. We go there regularly and never tire of it, and any foreign visitors we have to stay are always taken there for a bit of real Olde English history.

You can view the mill from the outside at any time, but if you want to go inside, best check their website for opening times and events.

We went at the end of August and cycled from Worthing it's not called high salvington for nothing the cycle was hard going but worth it. They only charge £1 to go in and included is a tour of the windmill and how it works. The guides are very enthusiastic and the tour was great. It is worth looking at... More

Check their website to make sure it is open - it only opens alternate Sundays and not at all in winter. Sometimes it can be seen in sail and turning. An insight into the past and a must see attraction for children (over 5) and anyone interested in local history and old machinery. Parking is available at the bottom of... More

traditional village games and crafts plus Morris dancers and trips round the windmill. You have to get there early to be able to park near the windmill, and to get the best bargains from the cake stall!
