Hough Windmill

Swannington Heritage Trust

In April 2000 Swannington Heritage opened to the public its Swannington Hough Mill which it had refurbished from a ruinous state with help from the National Heritage Lottery fund.
During 2009 work was carried out on the cap to enable it to rotate as it would have done when the mill was in full working order. On 5th November 2009 the new cap was hoisted into place.
This short film captures this historic and very proud moment.
Hough Windmill is now open to the public every Sunday from April until the end of September, between 2pm and 5pm.
