Details

Bocking Windmill is a listed ancient monument consisting of five floors with a fascinating history.

Although, sadly, not a working windmill much of the original machinery is still in place.

We have a collection of artifacts many of which would have been used in the milling process.

On the ground floor there are a number of computer presentations which include a photographic tour, especially useful for those visitors unable to climb the four sets of steps.

Some scale models are gradually being produced which are intended to give visitors a closer look at the workings of parts of the windmill. This is work in progress.

We hold open days and conduct group visits by appointment and have knowledgeable guides who will explain the workings of the windmill from the very top to the bottom.

It should be noted there are no toilet facilities at the Bocking Windmill, parking available on street.
