The windmill site is run by volunteers and the whole family really enjoyed learning about the windmill. It's very small but a hidden gem It's interesting to see it's place in history and today.

We visited the mill today for the first time with a very excited 3 year old. Having worked in the city for 7 years, I'm surprised I'd not heard more about this little gem, that's located only a stones throw away from the centre. We...More

Green's Mill is a great place to come with smaller children (ie under the age of 12-14). Besides being a nice working mill it also has a small science centre which will keep youngsters occupied and enthralled. There is a nice park around the mill...More

Green's windmill is so easy to get to, about a 10 minute walk from the centre, and well worth it. It is one of only a few surviving city windmills and is beautifully maintained and really interesting. It won't take long to visit, up to...More

Percfectly walkable from the centre! If you head towards sneiton, and pass where the market would be it’s not far from there. You can use google maps or ask someone to point you in the right direction.

Hi, I wouldn't advise walking from the centre unless you are happy to walk for half an hour or so. There's not much around the windmill and so bare that in mind when you set off!
