The 5 sailed windmill that should turn clockwise
Burgh le Marsh Heritage Centre @  Dobson’s Mill

Welcome

Following meetings with Lincolnshire County Council personnel and elected representatives, inevitable delays have meant that we are only able to offer a minimal service on site at the moment. Fortunately we have a few stalwart volunteers remaining whose number has been augmented by willing ‘fresh faces’ and the site is open to visitors on Sundays 2pm to 4pm
A unique experience as you step back in time. The mill is very much a heritage piece as you might expect of a Grade 1 listed building. While some historians think the mill was built around 1813, a map from 1810 shows a windmill already on the site. The current mill tower was most likely built in 1844. What is certain is that the mill was worked as a commercial concern by the last owners, Dobsons, until the 1960s. It was then purchased for preservation by the County Council and has been run since by groups of volunteers. The BLM Heritage Group is now custodian of the site.
Due to the ineptitude of LCC personnel and the financial constraints placed upon them, on 9th February 2020 our beautiful mill was reduced to a rump and we are awaiting a schedule for repair. It has not stood like this for so long a time in 178 years
