Bircham Windmill

Great Bircham, Snettisham Rd King's Lynn, PE31 6SJ

Standing in the heart of Norfolk's undulating fields, Bircham Windmill now looks as it did over 100 years ago. At that time over 300 mills ground corn for horse & cattle feed and bread-making in Norfolk.

Today, very few windmills are left, and Bircham Mill is considered one of the best still remaining: it is the only windmill in working order in this area open to the public.

Visitors can climb the five floors up to the fan stage, follow the trails in the mill and gardens, dress up as the miller or turn the cogs in the film room.

To climb the mill and bread bake, just come along and book your slot on the day.
