Chesterton Windmill

Chesterton Windmill sits high on the hill at Windmill Hill Farm just outside the small village of Chesterton.

The Evans family own the farmland around Chesterton Windmill and so it forms part of Squab Hall Farms permanent landscape. Built around 1632 from limestone with sandstone detailing, Chesterton Windmill is a Grade 1 Listed building and stands 11m tall.

It remains a working mill and each summer hosts an open weekend where it is possible to go inside and see the windmill working. This makes it the earliest Tower type mill in England to still be able to work. The farm staff often comment that working the fields in the shadow of such a fantastic landmark is a real joy!
