Drapers Windmill

DRAPERS WINDMILL built by John Holman of Canterbury in, we believe, 1845 and restored by volunteers of the Drapers Windmill Trust from 1965-74.

After a further fifty years, the windmill has recently undergone extensive renovation to the cap and sweeps.

Originally one of three mills at the site, it is now in the care of Kent County Council.

It is opened to the public by volunteers of the Trust, who maintain the machinery and other aspects of the mill.There is a 1910 Crossley gas engine for auxilliary power, owned and restored by the Trust, and it is hoped to recommence flour milling shortly, following a six year break.

The Trust has recently installed a cctv screen in the reception area in the base of the mill, so that visitors not wishing to climb the steep stairs can also view the upper floors.

Unfortunately this area is not yet wheelchair accessible.
