“A beautifully restored, award winning, working post mill within the South Downs National Park in the heart of the glorious Sussex countryside, open to visitors. Open on the first Sunday of each month between April and October.* In May, July and September, these are themed events with lots of special activities for adults and children. A free shuttle bus runs from the Thatched Inn Pub in Keymer for these events. The windmill can readily be viewed from the adjacent public path.”
