Once home of the mathematical physicist, George Green (1793-1841). Since we opened in 1985 thousands of people have enjoyed the opportunity to look around a working windmill, buy some award-winning flour, take part in an activity, get their hands on some fun science, admire the views over the Trent valley and enjoy a cup of coffee in the millyard. If you haven't been up to Green's Mill yet do come and see what we have to offer.
