We visited on a very hot, sunny day. It is quite a hike up to the windmill but the farmer keeps it lovely and neat so the walking is ok. The windmill itself is simply spectacular and the views are utterly breathtaking. We didn't take...More

Lovely place even on a bitterly cold day - blew away the cobwebs (& nearly the dog!!!) Fantastic views Such a shame that there isn’t a circular route that actually passes directly past the windmill

Chesterton Mill can be seen for miles around (including from the M40). It is a local landmark. I walk up to the mill every so often for the wonderful views. It also has an interesting history. I recommend it.

Fantastic location - go on a windy, sunny, partially cloudy day and you will get a great sense of its position. Did it ever turn ? Apparently so, never been inside - one day anyway its very impressive.

Parking in the lay by on the road is free. It's a 5 minute stroll up to the Windmill itself which you can walk up to at any time of day.

I should'nt think so as it's in the middle of a farmers field and a noted Roman site.
