Event details

Saturday 11 - Sunday 12 May

Enjoy an exclusive guided tour of the last surviving post mill in Leicestershire with our knowledgeable volunteer guides.

Kibworth Harcourt Post Mill was in a sorry state but thankfully a generous grant enabled us to bring it back to its former glory last year. On your visit, you'll learn all about the fascinating history of the mill, see its newly-functioning historic machinery in action, and spot the mysterious ancient graffiti and apotropaic marks that daub its interior.

This Grade II* listed windmill and Scheduled Ancient Monument is only open to the public twice a year for National Mills Weekend in May and Heritage Open Days in September, so don't miss out!


Pre-booking is essential. Booking will close on Thursday 9 May.

Tours take place hourly, last around 45 minutes, and are limited to six people due to the small size of the site.

Saturday 11 May: 10am - 4pm
Sunday 12 May: 10am - 4pm


There is no wheelchair access to the site due to steep steps. Children must be accompanied at all times. There are no toilets on site, but there are some at the Windmill Farm Park next door.
