Jill Windmill is open to visitors on most Sundays from May to September between 2 pm and 5 pm.
Please note that whilst we will make every effort to open Jill Windmill to visitors, we do very much rely upon the goodwill and the availability of our volunteers, so we cannot guarantee that Jill Windmill will be open to visitors on every planned date.
One of our long serving volunteers will be unable to assist, on medical grounds, in 2017. His unexpected departure will significantly affect Open Days. Please contact us if you would be interested in being a Mill Steward, keeping our visitors safe in the Mill, or if you are willing to help in the Roundhouse with teas or souvenirs. The duties are not that onerous and everybody who comes to help enjoys it.
" What a place. Kids loved it. Anywhere else everything would be coated in plastic casing, but here you can touch and feel history "

Very occasionally, due to sickness, to lack of volunteers, to maintenance work on the Mill or to severe weather conditions, we regret that it becomes necessary to close Jill Windmill to visitors without notice.
Maintenance work is undertaken on most Saturdays throughout the
year, whilst Jill Windmill is closed to visitors. Depending
upon the nature of the work being undertaken, casual visitors may
occasionally be granted access to the mill grounds and exceptionally
access inside Jill Windmill, though such access is at the
discretion of our work team. Maintenance work is given priority
over visitors, so those hoping to gain access on a Saturday may
well be disappointed.
Jack Windmill is in private ownership and is not open to the public, however our Society Members are granted exclusive access to Jack Windmill .
