About this attraction
This unique six sailed, stone towered mill has been restored to enable it to grind corn into flour after abrak of nearly 100 years. Known locally as Ned's Mill, the wooden machinery and picturesque position make a visit a must.
Built in 1797 and restored in 2002, Heage Windmill is the only working, stone-towered, multi-sailed windmill in England. This unique Grade II* listed building is set in the Derbyshire countryside, providing spectacular views towards the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. There are guided tours, hands-on activities for children and an Interpretation Centre to make your visit memorable and enjoyable. Guides are normally dressed in costume of the period when she last worked commercially at the end of the 19th C.
Note: Climbing the tower is by a number of traditional steep open steps. A virtual tour can also be viewed in the ground floor Undercroft for those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground.
