Green's Windmill Reviews & Ratings
We had a lovely visit. The information about George Green made a good read and there was just the right amount of it. The science centre in the outbuilding was interesting and filled with fun things for children (and adults). There were activities going on for children too which seemed nice (though you would have to pay for these). The windmill and science centre had free admission which was great. It was cool to see inside a working windmill although the stairs were very steep which could be a problem for some people. Overall, it was lovely and exciting to see a working windmill.
Interesting place to visit, scientific displays were good, the video we played was well done. The windmill itself was good, lots of steep steps to the top! I liked the garden most, lots of veg and fruit to see, the greenhouse was lovely. It would be good if they gave more information on the maths, there were complicated mathematical algorithms displayed, but no explanation of why.
Amazing place for both children and adults. Very nice and friendly staff always available to help. They offer fantastic activities for children during their free time from school. I highly recommend this place 👍
Little known Gem of a place, George Green a millers son the Genius whose theorem led to greater discoveries in use even today, using Electricity and Magnetism . There is also a communal garden with produce for sale. Free of charge! Donations are worth making in lieu of entry charge.
It is a place where you can spend a good hour, at least. And you can spend a few quid on their own flower, veg from the community garden and books (considering entrance is free of charge). There are beautiful views, a little park and a good play area. Parking is free for two hours. We liked it and plan on going back.
