Dereham Windmill is the last of several windmills in the Dereham District. It is located in Cherry Lane (near the Neatherd High School) a five-storey masonry tower mill with a boat shaped cap winded by a six bladed fantail.
We asked the pupils/children what they wanted the windmill to be and (alongside amazing suggestions like a Helter Skelter!) they want to be able to hold exhibitions such as displaying their Art Work, Photography, Artefact Displays and to hold events between the schools. This would be in addition to visiting the Windmill to learn more about our history.
In September 2013, the pupils’ dream was made a reality as the Windmill was officially opened as an exhibition space for local pupils’ work with information on the Windmill’s History.
