Rayleigh Windmill Reviews
Felt very lucky to get to the top of this wonder windmill, where you can even get married in. No good if climbing steps is a problem. A piece of history that is lovingly preserved. more »
Its interesting to see the developments at the Windmill since my last visit. There is more audio visual stuff and a new exhibition on the second floor more »
Excellent visit - they have this presented well. Go to see it!
Contains a massive amount of local history, the 'guides' are very pleasant and informative - they clearly enjoy their role, well maintained, wonderful views from near the top of the mill.
