Amazing sight that is viewable for miles! Lucky to have such a great windmill here, if you are a photographer its a great location to take some photographs, but no means easy to get the best view.

Sitting just off the Tring - Ivinghoe road is a small car park leading to a short walk down to this windmill. Not been inside yet (believe they have the odd open day) but just a nice 30-60 mins to spend alone in a bygone...More

Historic Windmill, in picturesque location. You can have a look at the outside any time of year but if you want to see inside suggest checking for opening times, via National trust Website before travelling, then you won't be feeling a bit disappointed like me!!...More

Enjoyed visiting the windmill on Sunday afternoon. Good value for 2.50 pounds. Volunteers with a wealth of information about the windmill.

A lovely walk through agriculture fields gets you to this ancient windmill. No longer functioning, it's a historic landmark managed by the National Trust. Kids love to climb the sleep steps and it's a great spot for photos.
