Ellis Windmill, Lincoln
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
A local landmark, this working windmill is located immediately behind the Museum of Lincolnshire Life on Mill Road. It is the only one of nine mills once standing on the ridge of Lincoln Edge where Mill Road now runs.
The mill was built in 1798, and was in constant use until the 1940s. It stood unused for many years until restored to working order by the Lincoln Civic Trust. The mill is now owned by the Lincolnshire County Council but staffed by volunteers, who act as guides to visitors. Ellis Mill still produces flour products for sale and can be visited during limited hours of operation, usually weekend afternoons.
Ellis Mill is easily seen from a distance from the south and east, but is practically invisible if you are approaching from the city centre. Follow signs to the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, and Mill Road is directly behind the museum, a matter of a few hundred yards.
