The windmill, dating back to 1805, is great to visit - and is also such a prominent and iconic part of Lytham's waterfront. The display of pictures s fascinating - showing how the town was a top resort in Victorian times.

Travelled to Lytham to see the windmill and shopping area only to find the windmill was closed at the end of September. Managed to get some good photographs around the outside.

The windmill has recently been painted and looks great. Plenty of information boards near the site so visitors can read about its history. A great place to take photos. The location is perfect and can be seen from a distance.

A Lytham landmark on the green, great for a bracing walk. Not sure if you can actually go inside but it looks good from the outside.
