  • A beautifully restored working windmill standing on the Lincoln ridge and overlooking the Trent valley. The windmill is part of the Museum of Lincolnshire Life and is open on summer weekends. Please check the website for opening times to avoid disappointment. The windmill contains stairs which lead up through the three floors. The ground floor is wheelchair accessible, and the volunteer guids will explain how the mill works for anyone who may not be able to tackle the stairs. The guids will fill your visit with a wealth of knowledge as you climb up the mill and follow the grain on its journey through the mill. All in all, great place to visit and enjoy a trip back in time
  • Hidden gem, snuggled between terraced housing near the castle. Worth a visit.
  • Not bad. Couldn't go in it. Might go back in summer
  • Despite the fact that its sails have been temporarily removed for repair, we had a fascinating visit to Ellis Windmill. The volunteer guides were enthusiastic, helpful and informative. Our three year old son loved seeing the machinery and learning about flour milling.
  • A good place to get a bit of local history.
