Chinnor Windmill

Chinnor Windmill:

  • Chinnor Windmill is an historic flour mill that was originally built in 1789. It was demolished in 1967 for housing but fortunately many of the parts were stored, and the 'mill has steadily been rebuilt by a small group of dedicated volunteers.
  • Opens generally on the first and third Sundays of every month from 10.00 - 15.00 - but also open on certain other dates (or dates may change due to Bank Holidays) and for more details please take a look at Chinnor Windmill blogspot.
  • Visitors can talk with the restoration volunteers (who are an enthusiastic group of folks dedicated to their cause) and see inside and climb to the very top of the 'mill!
