Trouble at Mill

June 2024 update

In addition to the current repairs required to the machinery of Green’s Windmill our small set of electric millstones has also recently broken down.

After being pushed to its limits during the Covid-19 pandemic to meet the demand for flour and then again once the windmill sails were removed meaning it was our only source of production it has finally cried ‘enough’.

We are currently investigating the cause of the failure which may include lifting the runner stone and dismantling of the machine. Whilst these works take place it will mean we cannot produce any flour.

We know this is hugely disappointing, so as an interim measure we shall be selling stoneground organic flour from Shipton Mill. We are stocking; wholemeal, wholemeal spelt, white spelt and rye, all in 1kg bags.

If you would like to place an order, please phone the Green’s Windmill shop on 0115 915 8687.

How to create a sourdough starter

If you want to start baking sourdough, you need a starter. People are often surprised by how easy it is to create your own. All you’ll need is organic, stoneground wholegrain flour and water.

The Sourdough Club have provided a great recipe and instructions for creating your own sourdough starter.

A Journey Through Time

The History of Green's Windmill

Originally built in the early 19th century, Green’s Windmill has is a notable landmark in Nottingham. After falling into disrepair, it was meticulously restored in the 1980s to its former glory and now operates as both a working windmill and a museum dedicated to the science of milling and the life of its original owner, scientist George Green. Today, visitors can explore the mill, learn about traditional milling techniques, and even purchase flour milled on-site.
