This is well worth a visit, but take care to make sure it's open when you want to go. It is staffed by volunteers, I think, all of whom were very helpful local people. The workings are fascinating and the guides are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. You can even buy local flour, ground in the mill itself!

Being there today and the staff are amazing, they explain everything in so much details that you will understand exactly how a wind mill works. The view is amazing as well. Good experience.

We were recommended by a friend to visit the Union Mill. So we did and were very impressed. This mill can be fully accessed up to the top. Beside the mill itself we were very much impressed by the people who were there on each floor and explained all the details. For kids this was also very interesting, they could produce their own flour. Real learning by doing!
This is really a place you should visit if you are in the area. You will learn a lot about the way, how flour has been produced in the past and how people had smart ideas to make the work easier.

We went to the May Madness event in Cranbrook town, but ended up visiting the windmill. Wow what a place! we didn't intend to spend long there but ended up spending over an hour!

We had a guided tour of the mill with a guy who was a miller, he knew everything about the mill and how flour was milled.....Our 7 and 5 year old children were amazed by it all...

The best thing was he was talking to the children not us, so the boys felt it was a great trip!

They climbed to the top and got a certificate which was a great touch, and then our 5 year old went outside and walked al the way around it...
