Heage windmill down here in Derbyshire is a working windmill thats open to the public. Its worth a look if your passing. You can get flour from here and the views are great. There are not many of these left. We have one close by at Kirk Hallam but that doesnt work anymore.

The Windmill was refurbished a few years ago which cost approx £400,000. Not cheap but the dedication of a lot of people has made the windmill come back to life

bran, this can go in your breakfast cereal

So if your passing just call in. Its only open at weekends and bank holidays I think. The Windmill was working when I visited and making flour.
