Alford Five Sailed Windmill
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
In a county blessed with a large number of historic windmills, it may be hard to put one above the rest. Alford's restored five-sailed windmill can make a bid to be the most attractive of the lot. It is located at the edge of this busy market town.
The mill produces organic grain which can be purchased in the shop, along with a range of other wholefoods. There is also a tea shop on premises. Visitors can tour the mill and get an insight into the tradional milling process and actually see the mill grinding grain - wind permitting, of course! A small charge applies. A short distance away is Alford Manor Museum.
