Argos Hill Windmill Near Mayfield

Updated: Jun 28, 2020

Argos Hill windmill is a Grade 2* listed building dating from 1835. It is located on top of Argos Hill, near Mayfield, Sussex, and is one of only 50 post mills remaining in England. It is a fine example of the Sussex tradition in millwrighting and is a landmark for miles around.

We visited on one of their open days (See their website for dates). We were met by a team of volunteers who had a wealth of information about the windmill, they are very passionate about keeping the history and windmill working so future generations and learn/enjoy.

On open days you can see inside the windmill and also visit the top. We even got the opportunity to have a go at grinding your own flour using the rotary hand quern.

If you visit their website you can view a virtual tour

The Windmill is free to visit on their open days, but welcome any donations to help with maintence and to keep its open for all to enjoy.
