Green's Windmill - Nottingham

Green's Windmill is a little visited gem in the Sneinton area of Nottingham, just a short distance outside the city centre (accessed by bus numbers 23 and 24).
It is a working windmill (although the brakes were on when I visited) and makes very high quality flour which you can buy in the shop. Entry is free and there is a great little Science musuem, an ideal place for kids. You can climb up four levels inside the windmill to enjoy great panoramic views of Nottingham, through the flour-coated windows! Unfortunately the viewing deck isn't open to the public ('ealth and safety Sir!).
There is a wonderful park in the grounds, great for the kids to burn off some energy. This area of Nottingham also contains some historic terraced housing with the communal alleyways, not seen so much in the UK any more.

This is well worth a visit,'s free!
