The Wilton Windmill is a five-floor brick tower mill located on a chalk ridge between the villages of Wilton and Great Bedwyn in the southern English county of Wiltshire.
The mill was built in 1821 because the construction of the Kennet and Avon Canal had included the canalisation of the River Bedwyn which had previously powered several water mills in the area.

This is a lovely place to visit. Open for visits in the summer. The history of milling is told through the artefacts and information available on site. A great place for a picnic. They also open for special open days twice a year when entry is free!

The windmill stands high and can been seen from away off. It wasn't open when we passed by but it opens on special days such as Bank Holidays.

Went on February so not properly open but you can still go into the grounds to look at it. Sails were missing as being restored. Was hoping tearoom would be open as half term, but obviously open from Easter according to the sign , never mind! It made a pleasant detour from our journey . In a nice location. Parking was a lay-by opposite not sure if there was any other parking as didn't need to look for it. Didn't see a toilet.

A working windmill from 1821, very interesting and informative tour. Nice little shop where you can buy the flour milled at the windmill. A fun thing to do in the English countryside.

Small but delightful attraction. Open by volunteers on Summer Sunday afternoons. with well -informed guides and a shepherds hut selling tea, homemade cake and gifts. With a pocket money selection for children. Windmill flour is usually available. Wilton windmill is in working order, having two common sails and two patent sails. It's a pleasant walk from here to Crofton Beam engines. On a steaming day (usually bank holidays from Easter to September), combining Wilton and Crofton would be a brilliant day out for the industrial heritage buff.

Lovely tour of the windmill and friendly ladies in the Shepherds Hut who serve tea and ice cream. Would recommend!

The volunteers run an excellent tour and caravan - do not forget to pick up your bag flour and taste the goodies. The attention to detail within the windmill is extrodinary. The windmill is only open on Sundays between 2 and 5 pm but the dedication of the volunteers and their stories means you should make the effort to go. A truly unique experience with a beautiful backdrop within the Wiltshire landscape . A treasure!

I rode on my motorbike from London to this old mill, all on country roads. Very nice and easy day trip.
