 Visitor information

**CLOSED**

 

 

Please note that the Mill is currently closed to the public and will not reopen until 2018 to allow restoration work to put the Mill in working order.

 

The Visitor Centre will be open for select weekends in 2017 in preparation for our opening in 2018.

 

By car

 

Entrance to the Mill is on the A124 (89 St. Mary's Lane, Upminster, RM14 2QL), 200 yds. west of the traffic lights in Upminster town centre.

 

Parking is normally available on the field in front of the windmill. However when it is very wet cars have to be parked in nearby roads.

By bus

 

The 248 and 370 buses both pass the entrance to the windmill.

By train

 

Both Upminster (C2C & District line) and Upminster Bridge stations are a short walk from the windmill. 

 

Entrance to the Mill is on St. Mary's Lane, 200 yds. west of the traffic lights in Upminster town centre.

 

The 248 and 370 buses also pass these stations.

Accessibility 

 

Access to the windmill is somewhat limited because this was a working mill and was not designed to accommodate wheelchairs. However we do our best.

 

There is a hard path from the road to the door of the windmill and there is parking on the field so that cars can drop off passengers. Access above the ground floor is by means of steep staircases only. There is a ground floor video display explaining the history and working of the mill.

 

Our new Visitor Centre is fully accessible.

School visits & adult groups

 

Even though the Mill is currently closed to the public outreach school visits can be organised. Talks can also be given to adult groups off site.
