Open day

HEAGE Windmill is to open for free as part of National Heritage Weekend.

The 200-year-old, Grade II listed six sail windmill – which was restored in 2002 – will open on September 10 and visitors won’t have to pay a penny.

A spokesman said: “Given a fair wind, the sails will be turning and milling may be in progress, with flour on sale in the visitor shop.”

There is adequate parking on the site, off Chesterfield Road, in Heage.

Heritage open days celebrate the country’s architecture and culture by offering free access to properties.
