Marsh Mill (Grade 11) was built by Ralph Slater in 1794, a Fylde Millwright. The Mill is one of the tallest in Europe, and stands at a height of 70ft (21.5m). One of the tallest on the Fylde Coast. Marsh Mill is typical of Fylde windmills, being broad with tapered sails and the top is tarred and shaped like an upturned boat.
Until 1922 Marsh Mill was a working windmill producing wheatflour for bread, crushed barley for animal feed, rye flour and oatmeal. In 1928 the first two floors were used as a tea shop. Today the Mill with its working machinery offers a unique introduction to milling of a bygone age. During Heritage Open Days the sails will turn for the even (please call for times).
Guided tours to the public are available for FREE during Heritage Open Days. Tours give a real insight into the history and engineering of the Mill.
Marsh Mills Sails will turn for the event and there will be childrens activities on the ground floor
