Fantastic community place for learning a bit about science (magnets, prisms etc), about plants (great allotment with kids activities), a working windmill where you can learn about the process of flour making. We had a birthday party there for my 5 year old and it...More

This place was quite a cool find. They let us go inside even though it was working, as we got to see the flour being ground. Very cool short experience. The gift shop/office wasnt great, but that isn't why we went.

I know the place has a nice story which implies a windmill and a mathematical formula, I can't remember it well, but it's a nice park and it has a pretty view over Notthingham.

The windmill site is run by volunteers and the whole family really enjoyed learning about the windmill. It's very small but a hidden gem It's interesting to see it's place in history and today.

Green's Mill is a great place to come with smaller children (ie under the age of 12-14). Besides being a nice working mill it also has a small science centre which will keep youngsters occupied and enthralled. There is a nice park around the mill...More

Percfectly walkable from the centre! If you head towards sneiton, and pass where the market would be it’s not far from there. You can use google maps or ask someone to point you in the right direction.

Hi, I wouldn't advise walking from the centre unless you are happy to walk for half an hour or so. There's not much around the windmill and so bare that in mind when you set off!
