We happened to run into this real windmill on top of the hill in this local area, right beside the road. The windmill is restored and in great shape. Visitors are able to explore this monument from the past.

This place a delight. Well worth a visit. The guide who I had show me around was very knowledgeable & answered questions with honesty. Staff were very friendly. Well worth the £3 donation.

Visited on one of its special open days. Wonderful views to the coast and a real treat to witness at first hand the workings of a windmill. The volunteers are a mind of information. Thank you for everything.

Fab place to visit. Real working windmill and very informative guides. Lots of historical pictures with details of the area as well as the Windmill. Completely repaired by local enthusiasts, who sell crafts and cakes to continue to raise money to maintain this historic building....More
