windmills Brill Windmill Restoration Project

The Brill Windmill Restoration Project has been formed by Buckinghamshire County Council, Brill Parish Council and the Brill Society, in order to restore Brill windmill (its already in a conserved state, though not capable of working).

Brill windmill dates from the 1680s, and Albert Nixey was the last miller producing flour through to the 1920's. In 1947 the County council took on ownership of the mill.

Complete restoration and interpretation of the mill (Grade 2* listed) will be around £100,000, for which Heritage Lottery Funding is sought. Subject to funding, works are expected to begin in Spring 2004 through to Summer 2005. For further information on the project contact Carla Boswell on 01296 382949.
