Heage Windmill online: information and bookings

This historic windmill was built in 1797 and known locally as Ned's Mill. After many years of dedicated work from volunteers and enthusiasts the Mill was restored and opened to the public in 2002.

The Windmill is a Grade II listed windmill and is the only working stone-towered, multi-sailed windmill in England. Prior to restoration, she was last worked by miller Thomas Shore in 1919.

The mill has much of her old wooden mechanisms in place which drives one of her two pairs of millstones. In the basement, the interpretation centre tells the story of Heage Windmill and the adjacent kiln has been restored as a reception centre. The Windmill is open from April - October and groups may visit the Windmill at other pre-arranged times
