Visit Waltham Windmill, a six-sailed windmill located in the village of Waltham, five miles from Grimsby in North East Lincolnshire, to see one of very few windmills in the area renowned for having all six sails still in full working capacity.
Six sails still in full working capacity
Within the grounds of the windmill, there are a miniature railway, a museum dedicated to Rural Life, Grimsby Telephone museum, an old sweet shop selling favourites from the 1920s to the 1970s, an Indian restaurant, and a café housed in the body of an old Great Northern Railway 6-wheel carriage.
The windmill itself is still standing, and is funded by the Waltham Windmill Preservation Society and the Waltham Windmill Trust and various events are held throughout the year, ranging from Car-Boot Sales on Sunday mornings, mainly during the summer, to Classic Car Rallies, Airshows, and an annual firework display held on the first Saturday every November.
