Heage Windmill


Monday June 6th 2016 was a great day in the history of Heage Windmill: the six sails were put back, ready to turn again.

Built in 1797 and restored in 2002 Heage Windmill, a Grade II listed building, is the only working, stone-towered, six-sailed windmill in England. She is set in the Derbyshire countryside, providing spectacular views towards the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. Car parking space is available on site with wheelchair access to the Interpretation Centre, shop, toilets and the ground floor of the mill. A Virtual Reality tour is available for those unable to climb stairs. Not all areas are guide dog friendly e.g. the ladder-type stairs to the top two floors of the mill. The adjacent drying kiln has been rebuilt and operates as a Visitor Centre and shop selling souvenirs, light refreshments and the windmill’s own flour. There are hands on activities for children. Groups are welcome by prior arrangement and dogs are admitted on a lead but not allowed in the mill. Flour milling may take place when the wind is favourable. Look out for the many special events throughout the year -

Heage Windmill Flour Sales

The flour is stone ground on site using organic wheat from Suffolk. Flour types available are wholemeal, middlings, white, coarse brown and bran. The flour is on sale at the visitor centre during mill opening hours.

Limited access for wheelchairs visitor centre and gift shop only upper levels of the mill accessed by ladder type steps.
