NEXT OPENING DAY FOR SALE OF FLOUR: SATURDAY JANUARY 11th
PLEASE COME AND VISIT OUR WONDERFUL WINDMILL
Our mill, built in 1797 and restored to working order in 2002, is a unique Grade II* listed building set in the Derbyshire countryside, with spectacular views towards the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. There are normally guided tours, with guides in period costume, an Interpretation Centre, and a shop where we sell Heage Windmill flour along with souvenirs and light refreshments.
NOTE: the windmill is currently closed. We re-open on Saturday, April 5th with an official opening on Saturday, April 15th. Special guest: Andy Potter of BBC Radio Derby
