Heckington Windmill

Standing out against Lincolnshire’s big skies, this unique eight-sailed windmill forms the centrepiece of a complex set of historic buildings where visitors can experience how food is produced using natural power.

The whole site has benefited from a major programme of investment which has restored the whole Victorian industrial site surrounding the windmill and created a contemporary visitor attraction with
things for the whole family to see and do.

The on-site 8 Sail Brewery champions award winning craft beer including the Rolling Stone ale which uses malt ground in the mill, whilst the Miller’s Tearoom allows you to taste home baked breads and cakes in the shadow of the windmill which supplies its flour.

This unique eight sailed windmill is the only one of its type left in the world.   It is a working mill producing stone ground flour and it is planned that 2020 will see work commence on the repairs to the sail machinery.
