Denver Windmill was built in 1835 and continued to grind corn using windpower for over one hundred years. The windmill stopped work in 1941 when the sails were struck by lightning.
Now it has been lovingly restored to full working order with new facilities for visitors to enjoy. Once again flour is being milled using the power of the wind.
Your visit will include a chance to explore the whole windmill site and enjoy a unique guided tour right to the very top of the windmill tower. You will have a chance to see flour made the traditional way wind permitting! A new visitor centre tells the story of windmills, cornmilling and the people who lived and worked in these wonderful buildings.
Our own tearoom and bakery offer a tempting range of goodies to eat including bread from our own flour.
The mill is open Monday - Saturday 10:00 - 17:00, Sundays 12:00 - 17:00 (April - October) and Monday - Saturday 10:00 - 16:00, Sundays 12:00 - 16:00 for the rest of the year.
There are currently no events in the Downham Market area during the next 3 months that we know about.
