Details

Unfortunately the Mill will not be open in June and potentially July – work may continue into July and affect the opening day for then too.

The nearest Essex mill to London, Grade II-listed Mountnessing Post Mill is often photographed and sees many visitors.

The present mill was built in 1807, probably incorporating earlier timbers. There are records of a windmill on this site as early as 1477.

It has four floors, four spring sails and two pairs of millstones. It is in full working order and occasionally mills flour. The mill can be turned to the wind by pushing its long tail pole – children on school visits enjoy trying this.

Taken into public ownership soon after it stopped operating in 1933, the mill was fully restored and is now maintained by Essex County Council and Friends of Mountnessing Windmill.
