Visit to Nutley Windmill , Crowborough Road, Nutley, East Sussex TN22 3HY on the Ashdown Forest from 2pm. We can park in the field adjacent to the Mill, which is accessed via an unmade single track road (a little bumpy- take care). There will be a sign at the top of the track entrance from Crowborough Road. We will be able to tour the Mill & workshop and chat to the volunteers about their renovation works. There is also a small exhibition. A history sheet will be provided. The sweeps were unfortunately damaged in a storm prior to last Christmas and have been removed and are being repaired on site. Access in to Mill is still possible via some steep steps.
There is a mapped circular walk approximately 1.7 miles/2.8km from the windmill around an adjacent section of the forest leading back to the Mill for anyone wishing to
explore the surrounding area or walk off lunch. You can do as little or as much of the walk as your legs will allow; there are some gradual gradients.
Please bring along your seats for the afternoon if you wish. When the weather is agreeable the views are super. Tea and coffee will be available. Anyone wishing to provide a cake or biscuits this would be much appreciated. Toilet facilities are available on site. We have agreed to make a small donation to help funds towards repairing the sweeps, and Tony will have a box available on the day should you wish to help. We will also be allowed to park free of charge at the Mill. As many of you will know, the local authority have recently started charging visitors to park on the Ashdown Forest, which has affected visitor numbers to the Mill and Forest areas.
For those attending lunch and/or the Mill visit, it would be helpful to have provisional numbers as soon as possible but we will need to know Final figures & Menu choices by 16th April 2023.
