  • The recent development at Heckington Windmill has really given it new lease of life. Visitors centre is very nicely done, interactive and not just for ‘windmill nerds’! It has some great history and e...  more »

  • Called today 25 10 17 at 2 30pm - half term for schools, to visit windmill only to find it was closed. Gentleman in windmill told us we should have looked on the internet for opening times, he also stated that it was only open in school holidays yet your web site says open daily 12 -5pm. On returning home we looked on internet to find it says OPEN TODAY. This is the second time on ad hoc basis we have tried to visit. Only to find it closed. The café also closed....not enough is being made of the facilities which could be a boon for Heckington especially on a Sunday morning for morning coffee or breakfasts. NO STARS REWARDED HOWEVER HAD TO PUT ONE TO POST
  • Many thanks to the volunteers for their time to explain the inner workings of this most interesting windmill.
  • Brilliant little look into the history of mills and flour great place to take children also a brewery with hand pulled beers highly recommend
  • Interesting place to stop for tea and cake. 😊
  • Very interesting even though site was being refurbished so a bit untidy. I need to pluck up the courage to go upstairs next time! Update: site much more accessible, tea shop up and running. And I went upstairs and it's good up there.
