  • Open only once a month on a Sunday but worth a visit Parking not a problem or go on the bus 130. Kids enjoy it.  more »
  • The windmill has Open Days for visiting where you can have a free guided tour. It is all run by volunteers. Tea and cake are also on offer on. Well worth a visit. Signs on the road tell you where....  more »

  • Well maintained windmill along the roadside and is enveloped by a good neighborhood. You can enter the windmill and learn about it only if you book a tour which is free. It's not open on all days so it's better to check before you visit (unless you are satisfied with viewing it from the outside). They have a small cafe which I think it's run by volunteers. It was lovely to see it all being managed so well by the elderly staff. I picked this spot from maps when I was nearby at the Addington viewing platform and had to see it!
  • Stumbled across this on one of the few days it's open to visitors. Would highly recommend going if you're looking for something a bit different. The volunteer tour guides (especially Lois) are extremely dedicated and knowledgeable while the rest of the volunteers are cheerful and helpful. Fascinating stuff with more history behind it than you would think!
