After two years restricted by covid, the much-loved Wilton Windmill will open again to the public after Easter.
The mill will be open for visitors on Sundays and Bank Holidays from Easter until September 25.
Guided tours will run between 2pm and 5pm and the recently-acquired Granary Museum will be available to explore.
Visitors are welcome to bring their own picnics; hot and cold drinks, ice creams and cakes will be available in the shepherd’s hut.
Special attractions this year include the return on Saturday June 18 of the popular Smoke and Mirrors Theatre Company with their not-wholly serious Murder Mystery. This year it’s The Nile High Club, featuring passion, poison and pyramids. – an unforgettable way to spend a summer evening, complete with hog-roast.
And on the weekend of July 29,30 and 31, we will be celebrating – a year late! – our Bicentenary. The highlight will be a memorable event, Crop to Crust, when we hope to have authentic vintage farm machinery on site to thresh the wheat before it’s ground in the mill, and finally baked into delicious loaves of wholemeal bread.
