You may not be aware that West Blatchington Windmill is only open to the public thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers. We aim to open every Sunday from May to September but need more volunteers if we are to continue the current opening arrangements.

Ideally we like to have a minimum of three volunteers per session; to guide, to sell tickets and souvenirs, and to provide refreshments in our tearoom. All necessary training and support will be given.

Could you spare just 2.5 hours one Sunday afternoon a year to maintain opening this historic monument for the public to enjoy?

If yes, please contact us.
