Green's Windmill is a working mill and popular museum and science centre in Sneinton. The amazing inner workings of the mill can be seen, especially on a windy day, over four floors, including the grain cleaner and grindstones.
The Mill was built shortly after 1807 by George Green, the father of 19th century mathematical physicist whose name was also George Green. Having fallen into disrepair following a fire in 1947, staff at the University of Nottingham responding to a rumour that the mill might be demolished start a fund in 1974 to preserve the tower as a monument to George Green whose reputation as a mathematical genius has been growing. Five years later the Fund buy the mill and present it to the City of Nottingham and restoration starts. The mill and centre were officially opened in 1985 and flour is produced once again the following year.
All the flour from Green's Mill is organically grown and available at the mill shop.
