Due to a safety precaution the mill was closed at point of visit with no sails but as disappointing as this might be the reason for closing is to allow for refurbishment ready for 2019 season and lucky visitors visiting from the spring. Having been...More

Like the previous review, the mill is still closed for essential maintenance. It doesn't give an estimated reopening date. There is no on-site parking, but it appears that you can park on nearby roads/grassed areas for visiting. Only about 8 minutes drive from Framlingham Castle,...More

Sadly this interesting windmill was closed when we visited, for essential maintenance work. It is clearly visible from the road side.

Saxtead Green Windmill offers a view into a world long since departed. The exterior is a wonderful, and rare, example of a windmill architecture, but once inside you are transported into a world long since vanished.

Parking is outside on the neighbouring green unless you are a member of staff in which case you can park your car at the base of the windmill to spoil visitor's photos. Entry is a rather strange £4.10 - not sure how they arrived at...More

Always wanted to visit this beauty of a windmill and was not disappointed. We chose a beautiful day as well and the Postmill is actually bigger than I expected. It has three floors in the roundhouse and three floors above that. It wasn't too expensive...More

Set in the middle of fields, this is an interesting survivor of an old industry. You need to be able to climb steep stairs to take advantage of the views. Some displays on its history and workings. No onsite parking. Small shop and friendly attendant....More
