Guided Tours

 

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

windmill works.

 

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.
