c/o 46 Windmill Road
Herne Mill is a Kentish smock windmill dating from 1789. It is Grade I listed and is owned by Kent County Council and cared for by the Friends of Herne Mill.
The latest in a long line of mills which have occupied the site for centuries, the windmill is a local landmark on the skyline above the ancient village of Herne in Kent. It can be seen from the A299 Thanet Way, which passes nearby; from the Thames Estuary where it is a ‘sea mark’ and from the countryside around.
