Chillenden Windmill

The windmill will be closed to the public until further notice following the coronavirus outbreak.

About the windmill

Chillenden Windmill is one of only four post mills to survive in Kent, and the last one with an open trestle. It was built in 1868 to replace an earlier post mill, and extensively rebuilt following storm damage in October 2003. The windmill is painted white and had two pairs of millstones and a flour dresser.

During 2020 the windmill will be under repair. The four spring sweeps have been removed temporarily.

We have owned and maintained the Grade II listed windmill since 1958, and it is managed by the Friends of Chillenden Windmill.
