A 19th century windmill which was refurbished in 2014. A new H frame, repaired cap and new sails were included in the full restoration. This is a unique mill as it 'left handed'- the sails turn clockwise - and it has 5 sails. We are now demonstration milling regularly at the weekend. The informative heritage trail, outlining the history of Burgh le Marsh, enhances the visit and there are delicious homemade cakes for sale in the tearooms. Other displays complete your visit. The site is staffed by volunteers and therefore is not open every day but we can usually arrange a tour if you give us a call or drop us an email. We are now on Summer opening times, weather permitting. Please call to check Wednesday opening in early summer.

There are regularly events and fetes going on which is always fun for the kids and great for getting the community together. The volunteers showing you around the working windmill are great with the kids and happy to answer all their questions, which can take lots of patience with their inquisitive little minds! Highly recommended!

Visited on Saturday afternoon, just enough wind for the mill to be working and the sun was shining. We had an exclusive and very informative tour of the mill which was in action. The exhibits were informative and the tea room served delicious tea and cake at the very reasonable price of £1 each.

This is one of the best examples of a complete and working windmill that I've seen in England and certainly worth a visit.

We popped along to the windmill after having a Sunday carvery in one of the local pubs. It was great. The chap who showed us around was incredibly passionate about the windmill and his knowledge about it was widespread. Didn't catch his name - but out of the 3 guides he WASN'T Dennis or John! The tour was very personal... More
