All of the Norfolk Windmill Trust’s mills are visible from the road and footpaths. Most of these are open to the public on a regular basis or by appointment, and mills can also be opened for larger groups by prior appointment. Special open days can take place at some of the mills, and these may be advertised locally. Volunteers are always welcome to help out at these events. There is a small admission charge at some of the larger mills. All donations or admission charges go towards the further restoration of mills in the Trust’s care.
Whatever you interests are there are some wonderful mills and buildings worth exploring. Whether you are local or just visiting Norfolk we are sure you will find interesting and historical sites for you and your family to visit and enjoy.
