Built in 1797 and restored in 2002, Heage Windmill, a Grade II* listed building, is the only working six-sailed stone tower windmill in England. She is set in the Derbyshire countryside, providing spectacular views towards the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. Car parking is available on site. Visitors can go on tours with guides normally in costume. There is also an Interpretation Centre and a shop selling souvenirs, light refreshments and the windmill’s own flour. Groups are welcome by prior arrangement. Look out for special events throughout the year.
It is with great sadness that Heage Windmill has to announce the death of Peter Straw who was Chairman of the Friends from the time the windmill opened in 2002, serving as Chairman for 13 years. To read more about Peter’s great contribution to Heage Windmill, click here.
