Welcome to Sibsey Trader Windmill
Following the major damage to the windmill in the January storms, we have had our sails and fantail removed as part of a major repair programme. The good news is that we have been given the sole use of a pair of grey stones, a pair of french stones and a flour dresser at another mill north of Sibsey. This allows us to continue grinding our own grain to produce the usual large range of flour etc as normal. The whole range of oat products, muesli etc is also available. During this difficult time we appreciate the support of our customers and visitors. Although our mill is not currently working, we are open as usual. Visitors may still go up the mill tower to see the machinery and history displays. The mill shop and the ‘Old Forge’ tearoom are open as usual.
So, we are still open and it is BUSINESS AS USUAL while we wait for the restoration to start. We will add updates as plans progress.
Thank you to all our customers and visitors for their continued support.
Sibsey Windmill was built in 1877 to replace an earlier post mill. In its day it was the ‘Rolls Royce’ of windmills, and one of the very last to be built in Lincolnshire. It has been described as “one of the finest mills in the country, with its slender tower and elaborate wrought iron balcony.”
