Would have liked to be there when the windmill was open to the public. Looked very well kept. I know it is usually open on Bank Holidays.

No, sorry, that's incorrect. We open the last Sunday of each summer month, plus the National Mills weekend and Heritage Sundays. (Sometimes these are bank holiday weekends, but still only the Sundays).

I cannot imagine why this is on Trip Advisor, even if you park up there is nothing to see - it's just a locked up windmill on the way into BlackpoolMore

Great place to drive by and enjoy the view - often see this place as we leave Blackpool and must one day investigate more as we know the Lytham windmill well
