Your visit to the Windmill wouldn't be complete without a guided tour
of the windmill.
Guided Tours are available whenever the Miller or one of his expert volunteers are available (call ahead to avoid disappointment).
We recommend you take the Guided Tour as it provides detailed explanations of the windmill and it's workings, but you are also
welcome to check out the award-winning restoration on your own
(children must be accompanied by an adult).
Walk through the different floors and learn a little of the history of
Tuxford and the Windmill - and of course discover just how the
The tour takes in:
· The Meal Floor – with the tentering equipment and governers
· The Stone floor with the mill stones and their furniture
· The Bin Floor with the Sack Hoist
· and all the way to the top for a close-up view of the wind-shaft, wallower and brake-wheel and turning gear on the Dust Floor
Also - check out the "engine-pit" which housed a steam engine up until the late 1920's.
We also entertain Clubs and Societies for Cream Tea & Tour of the
Windmill with prior arrangement.
Please call us to discuss and book your visit.
