Shirley Windmill: 150-year history on our doorstep

This Sunday sees one of the handful of open days this year at Shirley Windmill, the 150-year-old working mill and piece of living history.

Shirley Windmill is one of only four remaining working windmills in the Great London area.

Shirley Windmill is located in Postmill Close, Croydon, Surrey, CR0 5DY, about 2 miles from East Croydon station.

Open Days in 2014:
July 6: 1pm – 5pm
August 3: 1pm – 5pm
September 7: 1pm – 5pm
London Open House Day September 21: 12 noon – 5pm
October 5: 1pm – 5pm

The last guided tour of the day starts at 4pm — visitors are advised to come early to avoid disappointment.

From time to time, special events for visitors to enjoy are arranged by The Friends of Shirley Windmill. They are also pleased to arrange group visits to the mill for those who are unable to attend on normal Open Days.
