Visit to Stelling Minnis Windmill and museum – 29th July
29 July @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We have arranged a private visit to Stelling Minnis Windmill and Museum for NFS members. Friends are welcome – moreover, you don’t have to be with a member to come along!
Admission is free, but a donation of £5 is suggested.
Refreshments are available in the cafe.
Cream teas are £4 and consist of a homemade scone, cream, jam and tea/coffee. Alternatively, tea or coffee is £1 separately, squash is 30p and there is a selection of ice creams.
The windmill accepts CASH ONLY.
The upper floors of the windmill are accessed by ladder, with the topmost floor the most challenging. However, the museum and cafe are on the ground floor.
We ask that members make their own way to the windmill. However, if you do not drive, please email events@newfolkestonesociety.
Please arrive at or soon after 2.00pm, as we will be split into groups for visiting the museum and the guided tour of the windmill.
If you are driving and will have spare seats, please let us know!
We request anyone requiring a lift or offering a car share contacts us by 24 July, so we can make arrangements.
Driving towards Canterbury on the B2068 (Stone Street) from M20 J11, take the turning on the right (Curtis Lane, signposted Stelling Minnis), a couple of miles after the petrol filling station. About half a mile down the road, turn right into Mill Lane, and the windmill will be on your left.
There is parking on site.
No firm bookings are required. However, if you think you and others are likely to come, please let us know so that we can give the windmill volunteers an idea of numbers. Furthermore, if you would like the cream tea, let us know so we can inform their catering team.
The sweeps (a Kentish word for sails) are currently away being restored at a Millwright’s; although we appreciate this detracts from the visuals of the windmill, we hope this will not spoil your enjoyment of what is sure to be a fascinating visit!
More information on the windmill can be found on the Stelling Minnis village website’s windmill page.
