RESIDENTS have been invited to an exciting 'waking the windmill' blowout weekend between 10am and 4pm tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday (February 23) at Avoncroft Museum.
The iconic structure, originally moved from Danzey Green in Warwickshire, has finally been repaired and is fully operational for the first time since January 2012 when it was damaged by high winds.
A team of specially trained volunteers have been working hard to prepare the sails to allow the postmill to start turning and mill corn, maize and pulses again.
Visitors will be blown away with demonstrations of how to make traditional bread in the historic Toll house which is furnished as it would have appeared in the 19th century.
Guests will also be given the chance to watch special film footage of the rescue of the windmill from its original home in 1969 and even have a tour around the newly-finished structure.
Tickets will cost £7.70 for adults, £6.60 for seniors and £4 for children.
