At the Oldland Windmill ‘Wind & Steam’ open day in Keymer on Sunday July 5 there was an opportunity to see the sails connected to a steam powered engine.
The mill last used in 1912 was open for the day for visitors to climb the 3 levels of the mill to see how it worked now that it has been fully restored.
Volunteers were on hand to explain it’s history and the 30 years of restoration. As well as refreshments and activities for all ages, visitors were able to relax in the music tent and listen to the millers blues band.
