“A bit of history in an unusual location”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

My visit to Salvington Windmill was very enjoyable, with a knowledgeable and friendly guide who gave great detail about this 16th century post mill. There are other restored items in the grounds. Check their website for functions and events.

“great visit on open day”

We really enjoyed our visit with family on a special open day- insight into times gone by. Some good walks beyond into the Sussex countryside

“Stepping back in time”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

This beautifully renovated, working windmill deserves a visit. The craftsmanship and dedication to detail is inspiring. It is a local landmark and deserves the support of all.

“Brilliantly restored”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Attending the summer fete we were also able to take a tour of the mill itself. Very well organised tour and the chap was very knowledgable on the history and workings of the mill. Unfortunately as it was the fete they were unable to show it working for health and safety reasons, which was perfectly inderstandable, but they do have it working some open days. Well worth a visit and lovely to see this sort of attraction so well preserved.

“A fine attraction”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Hidden in the suburbs north of Worthing is High Salvington windmill. Whilst there are plenety of old windmills around Sussex and Hampshire it is great to come across a working one. The windmill is in fact a very interesting working museum that still produces flour. Entrance includes a guided trip into the windmill and a video. The staff are excellent. There is a small working wind pump as well to look at. The cafe is nice and very good value. Their flour can also be purchased in the shop. A family ticket costs £2 which must make this the best value attraction in Sussex! Our children really enjoyed it. Possibly the only flaw is that due to Health regulations the windmill cannot operate when visitors are present.
