We've been wanting to see this windmill for a few years and we weren't disappointed. Shown around by a guy who cared about the windmill and was very informative. Well worth a visit.

The university of Nottingham has maintained this traditional windmill in full working condition. It's amazing to see the way it functions and makes the flour. There are small trails for the children which are very well done. Highly recommended

Went to visit our daughter and she lives near the windmill. It is a lovely place to take young children and the tea and coffee is very reasonably priced. We bought some organic oats and they too are a good price and absolutely delicious.

Green's Windmill has all the appearance of being an irascible monument. It's being refurbished at the moment and apparently some builders got injured in the process so they too are now undergoing some kind of physical refurbishment to their own bodies and souls. You can't...More
