  • Bradwell Windmill, Milton Keynes

    Bradwell Windmill, Buckinghamshire, South-East England

    Windmill

    Bradwell Windmill is a limestone tower windmill built around 1805 adjacent to the Grand Union Canal for the supply of flour to the London market.

    South-East England - Buckinghamshire, Bradwell nr Milton Keynes

    Bradwell Windmill is a limestone tower windmill built around 1805 adjacent to the Grand Union Canal for the supply of flour to the London market.

    Bradwell Windmill is thought to be the second windmill built in Bradwell village, replacing an earlier post mill on the site of Summerfield School, which sat on a post in order that the whole structure could be turned, so the sails caught the wind.

    The mill has been restored recently to full working order and is producing flour.

  • Ford End Watermill

    Ford End Watermill, Buckinghamshire, South-East England

    Windmill

    This little mill, recorded in 1616, but certainly very much older, was in use until 1963.

    South-East England - Buckinghamshire, Ivinghoe

    This little mill, recorded in 1616, but certainly very much older, was in use until 1963.

    Buckinghamshire's only working Watermill with original machinery.

    Restored by volunteers, and now maintained and run by Ford End Watermill Society, it is the only remaining working watermill in Buckinghamshire with original machinery. It retains all the atmosphere of a small farm mill of the late 1800's.

    An unusual feature is the sheepwash in the tailrace below the mill. Washing made the fleece easier to shear and increased its value.

    Stoneground wholemeal flour is on sale during milling demonstrations.

    Schools and other parties are very welcome.

  • Lacey Green Windmill

    Lacey Green Windmill, Buckinghamshire, South-East England

    Windmill

    Lacey Green Windmill is a 4-storey smock mill, built about 1650.

    South-East England - Buckinghamshire, Lacey Green

    Lacey Green Windmill is a 4-storey smock mill, built about 1650.

    Last worked about 1915, it is believed to be England's oldest surviving smock mill. It has been restored to turning order by the Chiltern Society from 1971 onwards. However, due to the age of the machinery, it has now been decided that we will not let the wind turn the sails any more.

    It is necessary for visitors to park in Pink Road, and then walk up the path to the windmill, as we have no access for visitors' cars. Cycles can be brought up the path, but no motorcycles, please.

    Please note that, on very rare occasions, the windmill may close in extreme weather conditions, such as high winds or thunderstorms.
