Further to the Prime Minister’s lockdown announcement on 4th January 2021, Oldland Windmill will be closed to the public until further notice. Open Afternoons and Event Days will not be going ahead at this time.
We look forward to seeing you later this year.
Oldland Mill Trust can offer guided group tours of the mill at any mutually convenient time. Numbers have to be restricted for safety reasons but a total of 16 visitors can be accommodated at any one time, split into two sub groups. Visitors of all ages can be accommodated and Guide, Scout and Youth groups are welcome (with suitable supervision) as well as more mature groups!
There is no fixed charge but a donation to mill funds is requested for each talk or visit. As a guide, donations recently have ranged from £40 to £200 largely influenced by the size of the audience or visiting group.
The Trust can also offer a PowerPoint Presentation covering the history of Oldland Mill. Early paintings, photographs and drawings are used to show the working life, the decline after it was abandoned in 1912, and the reconstruction from 1980 until the present time. The presentation can be used flexibly to suit a particular audience – for example, a presentation to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) focused on the 10 different kinds of timber used in the construction of the mill and the reasons why each wood was chosen for each application.
