Really good, you wouldn't believe the cleverness of the engineering that goes into a windmill. We were shown around by "Bill the Mill", who was not only very knowledgeable, but funny and great with the kids. He then allowed us to turn the 25 tonne windmill around using the tail pole. After that, he showed the kids how to mill flour using a quern stone and they got to keep the flour they ground to make bread at home. Really recommend this.

Visited the windmill for the first time today after passing it many times.

It was on an open day and was shown all of the workings of this old post mill. Even got to move the mill into the wind !

Lovely talk by the guys there especialy Martin who showed us around. Thank you

Good walk...not too long depending where you park. Its a lovely walk threw the woods and countryside. Windmill is only open at certain times of the year so watch out to see if it's open.

We wanted to,go for a walk on Ashdown Forest and chose the route starting from Friends Clump car park as we were interested on seeing a windmill on our walk. It certainly was a most delightful find and run by very friendly and knowledgable volunteers. You are able to go inside the windmill and what astounded me was the original tree trunk in the middle which dates back to the 1500's. Highly recommend this wonderful windmill.

The windmill can be reached by a large variety of beautiful walks around the area.Streams and rivers trail through the beautiful forest, and stunning views all over the downs.The windmill is no longer in use, but all the history, and facts etc, can be found in the information centre. There is a shepherds Hut, all in all this is a little gem hidden away in the forest.
