On Saturday 29 July, the New Folkestone Society enjoyed a great day out at the Stelling Minnis Windmill and Museum, with a delicious cream tea in the sunshine followed by a superb and expertly delivered tour. The windmill is a Grade One listed picturesque wood smock mill, which has been completely renovated to repair weather damage. It was built by the Holman brothers of Canterbury in 1866 and is known as Davison’s Mill after the family who worked on it for a century until the last miller Alec Davison died in 1970. It is well worth a visit if you didn’t make it with us on this occasion.
