Welcome to

Whissendine CE Primary School

Whissendine Windmill

We enjoyed our walk up the village to Whissendine Windmill and walked very responsibly with our partner.  Mr Moon was pleased to see us and told us all about the history of the windmill and how it worked.  We had lots of good questions showing that we were listening really well.  Mr Moon also showed us the sail that was replaced and how the shutters open and shut.  We saw how the grains turned into flour by putting it through the wheel grind.  We couldn't go into the mill because it was too dangerous with lots of machinery, but Mr Moon said that if any child wanted to go back with their families he would be happy to see them at any time.
