In England during the 17th and 18th century windmills were a favourite method of milling grain, particularly in the windy south-eastern counties. A fine example of an 18th century Kentish smock mill overlooks the pretty village of Woodchurch near Tenterden.
A public footpath leads up the hill to the windmill which is open for inspection on certain days.
Even if the mill is not open there are magnificent views of the surrounding countryside over the Walland marshes towards the English Channel coast.
Whilst in Woodchurch, why not also visit the Woodchurch Village Life Museum, the South of England Rare Breeds Centre, Smallhythe Place museum and also the Tenterden Vineyard Park.
Certain days between Easter to end of September: 13:00 – 17:00 hours.
Check the Windmill website for opening days.
