Tuxford Windmill is Nottinghamshire’s only fully working independent wind-powered flour mill.

It is open to the public on certain days and has a lovely tea room.
Home baking at it’s best. They cook and bake everything for their Tea room using their own milled flour and local produce
The Miller is often available to give a guided tour with a detailed explanations of the mill and its workings.

If you would like any more information on Tuxford windmill or other windmills in England, Scotland or Wales have a look at the Traditional Cornmillers Guild website.

The market town of Tuxford lies alongside the ʻOldʼ Great North Road (B1164) some 21 miles north of Nottingham. Little of the original village remains as Tuxford was mostly destroyed by a great fire which broke out in September, 1702.

If you know of it’s history I would be most grateful if you would share.
