Bourn Windmill is one of the oldest windmills in England dating from c1635 and is designated as an Ancient Monument.
It is special as it is a trestle post mill and one of only 7 surviving in the UK today.

Perched in lovely countryside to the west of Cambridge it is owned and cared for by local charity Cambridge Past, Present & Future, who need your help to support the opening and care of the mill.

The windmill is easily accessible from Cambourne, either on foot via the footpath from Cambourne Country Park (near Crow Hill), or is just a few minutes away by car or bike.

Location: Off Caxton Road, Bourn CB23 2SU

Every year the windmill is opened on five Sundays between May and September.

The mill is also now closed for emergency repairs until further notice – please help us raise funds to save it.

We need your help saving Bourn Windmill from collapse!
Sadly, the windmill is currently closed to the public and two charities, Cambridge Past, Present & Future (CPPF) and Cambridgeshire ACRE are working together with the windmill volunteers to attempt to save it from collapse and restore it to working order.

Take the survey:
We would like to hear the views of people living in Bourn and surrounding villages on the windmill via a short online questionnaire so that we can find out the best way to help a wider range of people to enjoy its history and encourage them to visit it once it reopens again.
Your views are just as valid even if you have never heard of the windmill or visited it before.

You can find the survey at
The survey will close on Friday 3 September 2021.

All surveys returned by 5pm on this date will be entered into a prize draw for a free guided tour of the windmill for up to 6 people and a delicious afternoon tea.”
