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.

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.

A well restored if underfunded windmill. A wonderful sight for young and old. Last time I visited there was not too much to see, but still a great sight.
