I often count myself in the second category.
This weekend is National Mills Weekend. It does what it says on the tin! Go on, do some research and then take a trip out to do something interesting!
My local windmill is Lacey Green Windmill in Buckinghamshire. It is open tomorrow (12th May 2013) from 11am to 5pm. It is defienitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
My 2011 visit report is at the end of this link (click and scroll down).
Have an enjoyable weekend!
Weather on Sunday 12th May 2013
At the time of writing, 8 pm on Saturday 11th May, the weather forecast for Sunday 12th May is not good. A wind of 14 mph with gusts of 28 mph (Force 6) is forecast from 10 am to 1 pm. Heavy rain is forecast from 2 pm until 7 pm. It has therefore been decided, for the safety of the windmill, and those working on it, that we would be unwise to fit the sailcloths. We may be able to let the wind turn the sails without the sailcloths.
