Restored to full working order, this late-18th century corn mill, for flour and animal feed, with its miller's house and associated buildings gives a unique insight into a lost industry. The McGilton family worked the windmill until the 1914-18 War; thankfully they saved the windmill and gave it to EHS so that we can enjoy it today.
The Millers house is also open with its impressive kitchen and fireplace containing a unique double flue. The outbuildings now serve as visitor centre with displays, models and audio-visual theatre.
