Welcome

Welcome to the Chinnor Windmill website.  Over time this will develop into a central resource for information about the restoration of the mill and for visitors and those interested in the mill's history.

For updates on progress please see the Current Restoration page.

October 2017
New pages added on the CAD documentation of the 'Mobile mill' and our 1920 Cooch Winnower by Crafty Tech Ltd, (includes a manipulate-able 3d CAD file of the winnower you can download)

'Chinnor windmill restoration society' takes over Red Kite Radio 107.2 FM  on Saturday 14th October 2017 between 1-2 pm

September 2017
To make it easier for the public to know when we're at the mill, we now work on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month (rather than on alternate Sundays as we did in the past)


October 2014
The mill is open during our working parties when we’ll show you round, and encourage you to get involved, either helping with the remaining carpentry, sitework and procurement of parts, or the historical documentation of the windmill, and of course publicising and fundraising.

Our aim is to try and also open the mill whenever there are village events on Whites Field, and so we’re looking for people to assist with this, showing visitors round, and helping on these additional open days when the working party members may not be on site.

We’d also hope to make a degree of access to the site possible on an ad-hoc basis so that visitors to the village can get up close to the outside of the mill, so we’re looking for a way of making a key available in the village- details will be added to the 'visiting' page.

So far we’ve done tours for Mill Lane Community Primary School, Windmill nursery, a Brownie pack and a group from Haddenham’s University of the 3rd age , so let us know if you’d like a group tour and we’ll see what we can do.
