This windmill is maintained by a group of local volunteers who also have lovely creams on hand. A perfect way to spend a summers afternoon.

This is a lovely working mill that you can explore every level inside. Amazing what our ancestors could do. Tea shop looked lovely.

Windmill seems to open most Sundays and a knowledgeable guide shows you round. Very steep ladders between floors but perfectly ok if you take your time. Nice cafe/shop and museum. Refreshingly uncommercial. No problem parking and well worth a visit.
