FLOODLIGHTING

Each evening the Mill has been floodlit, and is a remarkable sight for the Town and for Visitors alike. Whilst the mill is closed for maintenance, we plan to replace the original tungsten filament lighting with energy efficient LED lighting designed to enhance the evening view of this Grade 1 Listed Building.

CO-OP LOCAL COMMUNITY CAUSES

We are delighted to have been chosen, as one of three local causes to be selected by the Co-op to participate in their Local Community Fund for 2020/21.

Cranbrook Windmill Association (A Registered Charity) was formed in 1982 by members of the local community to enable the windmill to be open for visits for local residents, school groups and other visitors, for the first time in the mills history. Now involving a team of Volunteers, who wish to share their enthusiasm for this iconic building with our Visitors, and in some cases also seek to be further involved in wind milling of flour and routine maintenance.

If you wish to support us, please ensure that you are a Co-op Member then
