Event description

Description

Fred Maillardet, chair of the Oldland Mill Trust, will introduce the tours. Oldland Windmill was built in 1703 and is now completely restored to its final state when abandoned in 1912. The visit will include what the mill volunteers have learned about the use of different timbers (there are 10 different woods used in the mill), explain the challenges of running - as opposed to restoring - a windmill, productivity in practice, and how they see the future of windmills given the growth in interest in Heritage Wheats and Stone Ground Flour.

Children over 7 are welcome, but note the tour requires climbing steep steps so isn't suitable for young children or people with mobility difficulties.
