Upminster Windmill was built by James Nokes, a local farmer, in 1803. It is a Grade II* listed building and in terms of quality, completeness and significance it is widely considered to be amongst the very best remaining English smock mills.

 

It is now preserved and staffed by volunteers so as to keep it open to the public, and it is our ultimate purpose to see it restored to working order. You can read the latest on the restoration here.
