About
Cromer Windmill - Hertfordshire's sole surviving windmill and a grade II* listed building dates from 1681, as determined by a dendrochronological survey conducted in 1998. It stands on an artificial mound just outside Cromer, near Ardeley, in which parish a windmill has stood for nearly 800 years. Cromer Windmill is open 2.30pm to 5.00pm on Sundays and the second and fourth Saturdays from mid-May until mid-September and also the late Spring Bank Holiday Monday and the August Bank Holiday Monday; groups at other times by appointment.

It's beautiful to have this on our doorstep, it's incredibly pretty and well cared for. The backdrop at harvest time is amazing, photography opportunities abundant. Maybe a picnic for an hour would be sufficient.

Great for adults and children; the video helps to put the story into context and the personal guide is really helpful! The windmill is 4 storeys, so very exciting to see what happens on each floor! There is a trial to find the mice hiding away, and this is good to keep young and old interested! Only £2 to get in - a really worthwhile visit!

Lovely visit to Hertfordshire’s only surviving windmill. Very well maintained and restored and the history was brought to life by the enthusiasm and knowledge of our guide. Fun to climb right to the top and feel the movement of the windmill as it was a windy day. Would wholeheartedly recommend a visit to this little piece of Hertfordshire history.

Friendly visit with lots of information at a leisurely pace. Dendrochronology was really interesting for central post and came away understanding all about windmills. Climbed right up to the top internally and looked at all the workings. Even had a video to explain it. Well worth a visit.

A small local windmill. Open usually one weekend in the month. Stopped today for something to do. As a small carpark making visitig easy. Only a small entrace fee which gave us a guided tour of the museum and watched the video on the history of the mill. The guides were very knowledgeable. It was more interactive for the children than I was expecting. They had to hunt for the knitted mice and had a chance to grind their own flour. A fantastic visit in all.

This appears to be in incredibly good condition and looks very attractive in its location. I believe it is the only remaining traditional windmill in Hertfordshire.
