Dereham WindmillEnjoy a visit to a Grade 2 Listed Windmill built in 1835. No longer used as a working mill, it has been restored by the Dereham Windmill Charity Trustees, Volunteers and Friends and reopened as a popular Exhibition Cent

Opening times: Dereham Windmill is now closed for its Winter Break and will re-open in March 2020. But the Coffee Shop remains open in the capable hands of Partea Hut.

A traditional tearoom serving a varied menu of all day breakfasts,  a selection of light lunches, ‘Specials’ board, scones and sausage rolls, homemade cake plus various hot and cold drinks.  Partea Hut make cream and savoury teas and take bookings for Afternoon Teas.

There are five floors and although the steps are steep and not suitable for all, a video presentation on the ground floor tells the story of the windmill and includes footage of the upper floors and exhibitions. The windmill is set in extensive grounds with a detached Coffee Shop serving coffee/tea and delicious home made cakes.  Full disabled facilities are available within the coffee shop and grounds, including a specially adapted picnic bench.

We welcome visitors to come and see monthly changing exhibitions held in this historic building.
