Various dates 9 - 18 September | 2022 | 10am - 4pm
Green's Windmill

Join Green's Windmill for a special exhibition to celebrate Heritage Open Days. Learn more about famous mathematician George Green, view photos of the Mill's restoration and read the many press cuttings.

Green's Windmill is a restored and working 19th Century tower mill, once home to mathematical physicist George Green. For Heritage Open Days they'll be running a special exhibition about the history of the mill using excerpts from our extensive archive. In the adjacent science centre, you can discover the remarkable story of Green and experiment with the things that fascinated him, such as light, electricity and magnetism. 

After your visit, why not explore the award-winning community garden, much like a typical garden from Green's day. 

There's something for all the family!

Entry is FREE!
