Thank you for your review. We agree - it is a great place for children to play. You can visit the Windmill on Sunday afternoons between Easter and the end of September 2pm-5pm. That's a great place to shelter from the wind too!

I love Brill common and the Windmill. What a wonderful pace to run around carefree as a child, or amble with dogs. The windmill is steeped in history and is well worth a visit - fascinating.

The mill is situated on a series of small hills and is very picturesque. Free parking, the hills are fun for the kids and for photographers, the views are spectacular. The Mill opens on certain days, check the website directly.

Try to visit here each U.K. visit we do, such a peaceful place with fantastic views, sit and enjoy or walk, cycle whatever is your preference, could do with better signage from the main road though,
