PLEASE NOTE: Further to the Prime Minister’s latest (16/3) announcement on Coronavirus, Oldland Windmill will be closed to the public until further notice. Open Afternoons and Event Days will not be going ahead at this time. We look forward to seeing you later in the year.
Visitors are welcome at the Mill on Thursday Mornings throughout the year when volunteers are working on site and depending on the level of maintenance activity may be available to give a guided tour.
In 2020 the mill will be open on the first Sunday of each month, when we hold Event Days and Open Afternoons. In addition we will also be open for National Mills Weekend on the 10th May. **NEW FROM 2019 – a complimentary minibus, kindly provided by Hurstpierpoint College and Burgess Hill School for Girls, will be available from The Thatched Inn on all Open Afternoons and Event Days.
The Thatched Inn, Keymer, welcomes Oldland Mill Trust members and offers a 10% reduction to the food bill on production of a Mill Membership card. Please find information about becoming a Member here.
