Lovely place even on a bitterly cold day - blew away the cobwebs (& nearly the dog!!!) Fantastic views Such a shame that there isn’t a circular route that actually passes directly past the windmill

Chesterton Mill can be seen for miles around (including from the M40). It is a local landmark. I walk up to the mill every so often for the wonderful views. It also has an interesting history. I recommend it.

Nice walk and great for flying a kite with the kids and seeing the windmill gives a bit of history about it on the notice board
