I visited this windmill when we moved to the area and it is within walking distance of our house, so felt we must go and check it out. It was well worth the effort, it is fully working and has been well maintained and lovingly looked after by the local windmill enthusiasts. There is a full tour of the interior... 更多
This important local historical attraction is going to get better, as the Friends of Upminster Windmill have won a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to undertake major restoration work on the mill. Unfortunately, this means closing the mill to the public while the work is done. However, a new visitor centre is being built on the site and will be welcoming... 更多
Beautiful smock windmill within walking distance of Upminster Bridge District line station and Upminster C2C. Usually has an open day once a month in spring to autumn so you need to find out when it is open. Also 370 and 248 buses pass right by. I know the Windmill well and have visited several times. One word of warning if... 更多
What a treat this windmill is, and what an odd location - in its own field within a very residential area in Upminster. Actually it looks a bit haunted.

Do not be put off by some of the other reviews here as they are for the pub down the road called the Windmill. This is a lovely old windmill maintained and run by very knowledgeable volunteers. It is a great place to take youngsters 4 -5 years upwards.
Open two weekends a month through the summer and staffed by volunteers. Free guided tours of the most complete smock mill in the country. If you live local or are interested in a bygone age, or like old engineering then visit...there is something of interest for all tastes and ages.
