  • CURRENTLY SHUT EVERY DAY (INCLUDING SUNDAYS!) AND WITHOUT SAILS: While this is not reflected on their website, the windmill is CURRENTLY SHUT EVERY DAY WITHOUT EXCEPTION and the sails have been taken down. You can walk up a (rather overgrown) path to the windmill, but you cannot go inside. Apparently it was damaged in a storm within the past year.
