This remarkable building is one of the oldest surviving mills in the country. The earliest record we have of the mill is from 1636, but it may be much earlier as this type of windmill has hardly changed since the 13th century.
One of the oldest windmills in the UK is at risk of collapse, we are working to save it.
Bourn Windmill is located between the villages of Bourn and Caxton, just south of Cambourne. It was purchased by our charity in 1936 and restored from a state of dereliction into working order.
Bourn Windmill is owned and cared for by local charity Cambridge Past, Present & Future, who need your support.
