Bembridge Windmill

Penned on the 15th December 2011

Bembridge Windmill

Built around 1700 this is the only surviving windmill on the Isle of Wight and and has most of its original machinery intact. It last operated in 1913 and this year celebrates 50 years of ownership by the National Trust.

Tucked away in the village of Bembridge you'll find the only surviving windmill on the island. 

Now owned by the National Trust, you can climb the four floors and take in the fantastic views from the top, then follow the milling process back down.

There is an I Spy trail to keep the children entertained and National Trust members get FREE entry. Refreshments are available, but please note there is no toilet there. Parking is roadside and limited at busy times.

The Windmill marks the start of the Culver Trail, which takes you on a 3 km stroll round Whitecliff Bay and Culver Down.

Relax back in Bembridge with a nice pub lunch at the Village Inn  or a lovely meal at the renowned Crab and Lobster Inn overlooking the Solent.

For those preferring a nice cup of tea and cake try a Bembridge bun at the Bakery.
