History & Visitor Information

Wrawby Windmill was built around 1760 & is now the last working postmill in the North of England. The mill is located high on the Lincolnshire Wolds on the site of the previous open trestle postmill.
The current mill lost a sail in 1940 & was then left unused until 1961 when permission was requested to knock the mill down. Fortunately, a preservation group was formed to save the mill and to completely restore it. On the 18th Sept 1965, after a gap of 25 years the sails were set in motion to grind the first bag of corn.



Wrawby Postmill has a number of Open Days throughout the year where a Souvenir Shop and refreshments are available.
