Jill Windmill is a 19th century corn windmill located at Clayton, West Sussex in the United Kingdom. She is a traditional working corn windmill in the South Downs National Park. She has fully restored and is now maintained by volunteers from the...more
Had we timed our visit better we would have ensured it was at a time when the windmill was open (on a Sunday in the summer). However the trouble of actually locating it was rewarding for the views alone.
Perched on top of the South...More
A little gem with so much to see and enjoy and learn. Not done in a forced way but fascinating and friendly and fun. That it has survived is a miracle... go and enjoy when its open... which is NOT every day!
Quite unique to have two windmills on one site, one white and one black. They dominate the countryside and are a great half day out for the family although extensive renovations have been done recently.
I have been a member of Jill Windmill for about 2.5 years now and love every minute of it. Coming up from Bristol, I am only able to come up about four times per year but am looking forward to helping with the painting this...More

We walked past these iconic emblems of the past after a long day trekking the South Downs Way from Storrington. Jill looks quite immaculate whilst poor Jack appears to be in the earlier stages of restoration. Regardless they provided a real beacon of joy for...More
I walk here several times a week with my three dogs. Car park can get busy at weekends so need to be early, but is free. Lots of walks from here across the South Downs Way. Word of caution is check for livestock before let...More
The title does sound a bit over the top I know, and I don't know if we were just lucky. But walked here over the Downs and were met by the lovely sight of this immaculately restored windmill in full flow. Small cafe inside where...More
Our group of 3 friends (females in twenties) were staying locally in a campsite and did a walk around the area and were so glad we went to jack n Jill, a must see. Perfectly picturesque, the gentleman in Jill let us up and offered...More
