Guided visit to Berkswell Windmill
Windmill Lane, Balsall Common, West Midlands CV7 7GY
Built in 1826 on the site of a previous postmill, Berkswell Windmill is probably the least-known of the area's heritage buildings, despite being a Scheduled Monument. It is a typical Warwickshire tower mill, and also the most complete example, with its sails and all its internal machinery and tools for making flour and animal feed intact.
Owner Jeanette McGarry and her team of volunteers open the mill to visitors once a month through the summer, but we will be enjoying our own special tour on 17 May. The internal workings of the mill can all be seen, though in recent times the opportunity to drive it from the wind has been much limited by the growth of surrounding mature trees. It is also threatened with being marooned in the centre of a large new housing development. https://www.facebook.com/BerkswellWindmill/
