First of all there's the location; set up on a hill with lovely views. We were there on a scorching day and had a nice picnic at one of the sets of picnic tables overlooking the vista. There's plenty of good free parking too.
Then there's the mill - a working mill producing flour they sell in the small shop - restored to excellent condition.
Mainly though there's the volunteers who for £3.50 will give you an hour-long tour around the mill (two stiff flights of stairs). They have a great knowledge of the place and talked with enthusiasm and humour.
Heage Windmill is well worth a visit. It's not the biggest attraction in the world, but will occupy a couple of hours.
