Bursledon Windmill

About

Hampshire's only working windmill, Bursledon Windmill was built in 1814. After falling into disrepair, it was restored and then re-opened in 1990 as a working windmill and heritage visitor attraction.

Other buildings on the site include the Chineham Barn which was rescued from demolition and now houses the ticket office and other visitor facilities; there is also the Hiltingbury Granary, an 18th century farm building which stores grain for the mill. The pond, to water the farmer’s horses, has been re-dug in its original location.

Entrance to the windmill building is part of the guided tours which start every half hour. If travelling a long way to visit, it is advisable to phone ahead to check whether the tours are busy. Please note the last tour of the day leaves at 3.30pm. Much of Bursledon Windmill is an outdoor site, please wear suitable clothing and footwear for the weather conditions. Please note visitors in flip flops or stilettos are not allowed above the ground floor.

On your visit, you can also take a walk around neighbouring Windmill Wood, a young woodland habitat supporting a wide range of wildlife, including woodpeckers or try grinding flour by hand in the barn using either the ancient saddle quern or the medieval rotary quern. Please be aware that Bursledon Windmill is a cash only site.
