A truly fascinating trip to herne windmill. Crewed by volunteers who are passionate about this 250+/- year old windmill. A great asset which needs to be kept alive for future generations. Well worth a visit.

Pity it wasn't open. The mill is situated at the top of a housing estate in Herne. No car parking but the gate was open for us to take a closer look. A great detour from our destination, Herne Bay.

Shot a small documentary on the Mill, you can find it on their website, it gives you a taster of what the place is like and the work that the friends of... More

Herne Mill is not a working mill anymore but is very nice to look round and see how things were done. It is not open all the time so check to see if it is open if your planning a visit. It does take part in the National Mill day. Part of it is currently used as a meeting room... More

I pass this everyday. Near to my home. Not many intact mills around. Can be seen some distance from the thanet way. A landmark that I never get tired of seeing, I know home is just minutes away. Open on some weekends.
