Discover Bursledon Windmill, Hampshire’s only working windmill, and a fascinating glimpse into the county’s milling history. Built in 1814, after a period of dereliction it was restored and reopened in the 1990s as a working windmill and heritage attraction.
Other buildings on site include the Chineham Barn, which now houses the ticket office and other facilities, and the Hiltingbury Granary, an 18th century farm building. The pond that used to water the farmer’s horses has been re-dug in its original location. Much of Bursledon Windmill is an outdoor site, so suitable clothing and footwear are strongly advised.
