STONE CROSS WINDMILL

 Why not come along to the Spring Fair Saturday April 22 10-12 at Westham Village Hall or the tombola Saturday April 29 at Langney Shopping Centre 9-12. All monies collected help support this iconic building and its continual maintenance.

The Windmill is now open every Sunday 2-5pm for tours and refreshments. Freshly milled wholemeal flour produced in the Windmill is also on sale and the volunteer bakers often produce delicious cakes to accompany the tea.

The Heritage center in the Roundel (the bottom accessible part of the Windmill) has an updated history of the Windmill.

Stone Cross Mill Trust (SCMT) is a registered charity that owns Stone Cross Windmill. This Windmill is a Grade II* listed building and is a significant part of this country’s industrial and farming heritage. The Windmill is located off Beggars Lane BN24 5EA to the east of Stone Cross crossroads.

The Trust has just installed new gears and a hot water drinks dispenser thanks to a grant from Wealden District Council and Westham Parish Council.

The Trust are always looking for volunteers who are willing to help in a number of practical ways such as building maintenance, guiding visitors, baking cakes and helping serve refreshments. Please contact the Chair if you are interested in being a volunteer or visit the Windmill one Sunday afternoon for a chat with one of the Trustees.

Private group visits are always welcome and arrangements can be made visits by telephoning Barbara Molog 01323 483470 or email scmt2012@yahoo.co.uk.

UPDATE FROM PEVENSEY COASTAL DEFENCE

Always a favourite time of the year; all machines have now finished working
and hopefully will not be required to return until the autumn. Having said
that, this is the first year in several five that works have been completed
before the last week in April – or indeed May – so there is the possibility
that we could still get a late spring storm at some time.
