Directions to Bembridge Windmill
The Bembridge Windmill, which dates back to around 1700, is now maintained by the Isle of Wight National Trust. The windmill is a Grade I listed building and a treasured landmark on the Isle of Wight - being the only surviving windmill on the island! Bembridge Windmill was last in operation in 1913 and eventually the National Trust were given the site in 1961.
Although the windmill came to a 'grinding halt' nearly a century ago, much of the machinery still remains. On entering the windmill you will be charmed by it's unique character, beautifully restored with lots to investigate and a steep wooden staircase enticing you up to the different floors. Each floor has plenty of fascinating information to absorb, including a video on the ground floor and audio to play on each floor above that.
Bembridge Windmill is great fun for the whole family - from climbing the steps to each new level, having a go at milling the grain yourself on the hand quern, exploring the family trail and imagining what it must have been like to work in the mill!
The little kiosk next to the windmill sells refreshments and is staffed by very helpful, knowledgeable staff, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have. You may also want to go for a walk after your visit on one of the footpaths in the stunning, surrounding countryside.
Find full information and other Isle of Wight National Trust sites on the National Trust website.
