I’ve always had a love for windmills and I’ve not visited one for years. I was talking to the children about them the other day and they had no idea what they were used for. After explaining the ins and out of a windmill I thought it would be good to take a trip to see one so they could see first hand what they were used for.
We have a few near us but the opening times are a few and far between so when I came across one on Reigate Heath it seemed perfect.
The single storey postmill has been converted into a chapel that holds a service one Sunday a month during the summer months.
There are so few windmills left now that it is something I wanted the children to experience. I have fond memories of visiting a working one as a child and this is now next on my list!
