The mill was badly damaged in 1902 when a storm blew the sails off. It is a pity one cannot do a circular walk without having to walk on a fairly dangerous road.

We decided to visit Pitstone Windmill at relatively short notice and found it was open to visitors. A great walk to reach it across beautiful countryside and then when we got there what a treat. The guided tour was run by three very knowledgeable volunteers...More

Pretty windmill which is easy to access from a tiny car park. I had driven past it many times and not spotted it until I went camping at Town Farm Campground in Ivinghoe.

This windmill has been beautifully restored. It's a shame it's no longer a working mill but still very interesting.

Have never been inside this windmill, but its location and scenery around it is amazing. If you love photography, this is a great subject to photograph at any time of the year. The surrounding Chiltern Hills also providing plenty of places to walk and photograph

Sitting just off the Tring - Ivinghoe road is a small car park leading to a short walk down to this windmill. Not been inside yet (believe they have the odd open day) but just a nice 30-60 mins to spend alone in a bygone...More
