About Green's Windmill

Green’s Mill is a restored and working 19th century tower windmill in Nottingham, UK. In the early 1800s it was owned and operated by the mathematical physicist George Green (1793-1841).

Never heard of George Green? Not too many people have, even though he was one of the most remarkable scientists of his – or any other – age.

You can visit his windmill and, when the wind allows, see it working and buy our award-winning organic flour.

In the small Science Centre next to the mill you can discover the remarkable story of George Green and his achievements and experiment with the things that fascinated him, such as light, electricity and magnetism.

Restored in 1985 by Nottingham City Council, the windmill is run on behalf of the City by the Green’s Windmill Trust, a registered charity.

You can now donate online to help keep the sails turning.
