What stands 100 feet high and can produce toast?
Well not directly, but it can produce the flour for your bread.
Moulton Windmill is the tallest one in Great Britain standing 80 feet to the curb and 100 feet to the top of the cap. Built in 1822 and owned by only two families during it’s working life, the mill features in the first series of BBC2’s programme Restoration, and had nearly £2 million spent on it to bring it back to full working order. The first bag of flour produced for over a hundred years was ground in April 2013.
There is disabled access to the café and to the first-floor workings of the mill. Our tour will include a guided tour of the workings of the mill (with a part tour and video tour for anyone who is unable to climb) and tea and cake. You might also learn a little secret I'm told they have concerning the restoration.
There is a fish and chip shop on the road opposite the drive to the windmill which unfortunately closes at 7pm on the day of the visit (but you could visit before going around the mill). There is also the Swan pub restaurant near the chip shop serving food from 5pm but booking is advised if you wish to eat here.
Please bring your friends and family.
