About Cromer Windmill

Cromer Windmill, restored in four stages between 1967 and 1998, is a Grade II* listed post mill at Cromer, Ardeley, Hertfordshire, England. It stands on an artificial mound just outside Cromer, near Ardeley, in which parish a windmill has stood for nearly 800 years. The mill is fully restored, including its machinery for grinding corn, but cannot actually grind. However, when the wind is right the sails will turn and the mill comes to life again.
