"Possibly the finest Windmill in the land"

Mill from Stone Street


Standing at the highest point overlooking the historic Wealden town of Cranbrook and maintained in working order, this Grade 1 Listed Building is the tallest surviving "smock mill" in the British Isles. Managed by Volunteers of the Cranbrook Windmill Association, the windmill is open at regular times from the end of March to the end of September each year. Educational and other Group Visits are welcome throughout the year.

GOOD NEWS: Following major works by Owlsworth IJP Millwrights, the sweeps were restored to the mill in June 2017 and you can see photos and find a link to a video of the process HERE. We will be milling again whenever possible using both wind power and our new Electric Mill.

Stoneground Wholemeal Flour is normally available in the Mill Shop on Public Open Days.

The Union Mill is now CLOSED but more details of our open days in 2019 can be found HERE.

Wheels of Time
Wheels of Time BadgeThe Union Mill is pleased to be a part of the "Wheels of Time" scheme, which is aimed at encouraging 5-11year olds with their families to visit Museums and Historic Sites across Kent. We will be one of 33 venues where children will be able to collect badges and other awards based upon the number of venues visited. Why not make a trip to the historic town of Cranbrook and combine your visit to the windmill with one to Cranbrook Museum, also a member of the scheme and only a short walk away.

Don't forget to visit the Miller's Workshop Museum - More details HERE
