Lacey Green Windmill

About Lacey Green Windmill

Opening times:
The windmill is closed to the public from October to April each year.

Lacey Green Windmill is the oldest surviving smock mill in England; its important and unique timber machinery is over 350 years old. Until 1915, when its working life ended and many windmills fell out of use, the mill had taken advantage of its high position on the Chiltern Escarpment to mill various cereal products. By the late 60s the mill had deteriorated and was on the verge of collapse; it had suffered much water damage and people realised its antique machinery was under threat.

Restoration started in 1971 and it took more than fifteen years for Chiltern Society volunteers to return it to glory. Today the windmill is fully preserved and maintained by Chiltern Society volunteers who are delighted to be able to share it with the public.
