Green's Windmill is a restored 19th Century tower mill, once home to mathematical physicist George Green. Turning again since 1986, climb to the top of our windmill and see how our sails turn grain into flour. In our interactive Science Centre discover the remarkable story of George Green, and experiment with light, electricity and magnetism. There's something for all the family!

Green's Windmill is hidden away behind an abandoned church in the Sneiton area of Nottingham. We were introduced to it by the people we were visiting. It is an old working windmill formerly owned by George Green who was both the miller and a person...More

An interesting windmill, but surrounds and exhibits poorly maintained. Free entry, with donations. At the entrance from the car park is a boarded up old school hall, which is very distracting. Weeds growing up all over the paths leading up to the windmill, makes it...More

Visited Green's Windmill 16/8/17. What a gem! Working windmill, history, science exhibits. Green was a relatively unknown but brilliant mathmetician said by Einstein to be well ahead of his time. Two small boys enjoyed the visit. There is picnic space and a great children's playpark....More

Free parking and free entrance to a small interesting science-based museum/activity centre, interesting windmill and its history, and great views over Nottingham. Really nicely put together little attraction and worth finding it in the back streets of Nottingham suburbs.

Hi, I wouldn't advise walking from the centre unless you are happy to walk for half an hour or so. There's not much around the windmill and so bare that in mind when you set off!
