Milling since 1813

Welcome

Sitting just outside the North Notts village of North Leverton and Habblesthorpe, a unique windmill that has never stopped milling. It regularly grinds flour and animal feeds. Built-in 1813 by a group of local farmers, North Leverton Windmill is over 200 years old. A focal point for the local community hosting events and family fun days.

At the bottom of each page, you will find the windmill opening hours, contact numbers to book school and group visits, and details on how to support the windmill by buying your flour and oats direct from the windmill.

On this site you can trace the history of the windmill, get an idea of how it works and keep up to date with news and events.

Capture the windmill competition

To launch the new website we ran a competition on our Facebook page to find the best pictures of the windmill, be it paintings, drawings or photos. We have been totally blown away by the response. After much deliberation and cogitation, our judges have selected a Top Ten and an overall winner.

The winner image was from Jonathan Rich. Many congratulations Jonathan, it’s a beautiful photo that takes pride of place at top of this page. Below is a gallery of the top ten images as chosen by our judging panel.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who entered. Keep an eye out on the site as we will aim to use all the images over time.

Birds Eye View

Come and take a bird’s eye view of the windmill, see West Burton and Cottam powerstations in the distance, and fly over the top of the turning sales.
