My wife and I were on our way to St. Nicholas Abbey and came upon the mill. I had marked the mill on our map as possibly worth stopping, and the mil is imposing, so we stopped to take photos. Luckily, we were the only tourists there and the guide, whose name I wish I could remember to thank him, was very personable and obviously knowledgeable about the mill and plantation's history. Consequently, we decided to take the guided tour, which took about 40-45 minutes, in good part because we asked many questions. It was worth every penny of the modest fee. Don't miss doing the tour if you're in that part of the island.

We were driving across the northern part of Barbados headed to the east coast and stopped spontaneously. The parking is easy and free. There is a bar beside the mill. The couple who run the tours and bar are very interesting and nice. It was a worth the stop as the tour is interesting and informative. You can look eavesdrop on the outside of the tour for free! The 10$BD fee for the tour inside the mill is donated to the National Heritage Trust.

This was our 2nd time there but the first time when the place is becoming a destination. (There is now more than just the mill in other words.) The mill was open with tours but there was a long line to get in. However the tour guide (man with Grind green shirt) took us all over the site and gave us a lot of information on the mill itself and how it was used. There is also a small coffee shop now open all the time (beer, wine, and snacks) and there was a small farmers' market. We also did a bit of grocery shopping on the site. We bought a few things and when we paid we received a "thanks for coming" comment! The Saturday we went was a Barbados National Trust day so we got to listen to someone talk to us for under an hour about St. Andrew parish and the mill in particular. We learned a lot about St. Andrew and the area. Prior to the talk there was someone playing soft music as we were waiting. All in all a very enjoyable afternoon!

Waited over twenty minutes to go in, no shade no information on how long the wait would be, only ten at a time allowed in missed next tour by two people not prepared to stand for another twenty minutes plus so left 50 dollars wasted. Very small building so why it takes so long! They need a ticket system and time slot, issue a ticket with a group number and time (stick to a schedule) then you could go off and have a good look around, get drink etc.
Disappoint took us 45 minutes to drive there from Bridgetown cost me money and saw nothing!

This was a very quick visit but I like windmills so I'm glad we stopped on the way to the Animal Flower Cave! it's in a beautiful area of the country.
