High Salvington Windmill

Come and have a cup of coffee or a hot chocolate at the windmill on Sunday 17th March. Talk to the team about how you can help the mill by volunteering a few times a year.

There are many ways to volunteer: how about training to be a guide, or helping to serve teas and cakes, serving in the souvenir shop, or giving information at the gate on open days ?

Our Fete team in July always seeks helpers to man stalls. Come to the mill field where we will fill you in on how best you can help.

It's your heritage, and we need to keep it flourishing for the future.

Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May   National Mills Weekend
SPAB Mills Section Logo

For many years the Mills Section of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings has organised National Mills Weekend (formerly "National Mills Day"), a celebration of Britain's milling heritage.

Wind and water are sustainable power sources, used for hundreds of years in Britain in the production of natural food.

There are currently more than 100 working mills capable of producing natural, stoneground flour and many of these will be open to the public during National Mills Weekend.

In addition, over the weekend, a further 300 mills throughout the country will be welcoming visitors. Some working mills are more than 300 years old yet still efficiently doing the job in the 21st century that they were built and designed for.

The National Mills Weekend will take place on Saturday 11th - Sunday 12th May, with the theme 'Enjoy Your Mill - Get Involved'.

If you own or manage a Sussex mill and would like to take part in National Mills Weekend, please submit your details to us.

Submissions to the SPAB Mills Section (deadline 1st March 2024) can be made using this online form.

Sunday 12th May : 11 am to 4 pm
Open Day at Willingdon Polegate Windmill

National Mills weekend, Morris dancing and other displays,
teas and cakes available.
