We had a lovely visit to Cranbrook windmill. All of us learned a lot. The volunteers were brilliant and told us how everything worked and answered some really obscure questions. There is a working model inside of how the mill works and info on other windmills and their history. We went out on the balcony. We all got to grind corn into flour and bring it home! The steps inside the mill are a bit tricky carrying a baby but we managed and all of us reached to top of the mill. The children were given certificates for reaching the top. We ended our visit with a visit to the mills tiny shop which was very reasonably priced. The children bought pens, pencils and rubbers, the little one a windmill (like the ones you get at the seaside. Mum bought a bag of Cranbrook Mill flour. We all left very happy. Also amazingly the mill do not charge an entrance fee but they do accept donations.
It was a fantastic little trip out!
