Set high above the village of Wilton, Wilton Windmill was built in 1821 and was used until the 1930’s when it fell into disrepair. It was restored to working order in 1976 and is a Grade II Listed Building of Special Architectural and Historic Interest.

You can visit the Windmill site at any time – there is a picnic area with breath-taking views across to the Downs and the building can be viewed from the outside. Guided tours and access to the inside of the building are available during opening times. The shepherd’s hut shop, serving refreshments and gifts and providing a seating area, is also open at this time.

Special open days are held during the summer and are advertised on our website.

Wilton Windmill is the only working windmill in Wessex and still produces wholemeal, stone-ground flour, available at the Windmill and in local outlets:

      We passed Wilton Windmill on a circular walk and it really is stunning. It looks like time has stood still. If you can - visit properly and see inside/ the inner workings. Read full review
