Wimbledon Windmill Museum
Wimbledon Windmill is a much loved icon of Wimbledon Village, standing in the middle of Wimbledon Common.Wimbledon Windmill Museum is housed in the windmill which has stood on Wimbledon Common for 200 years, and has exhibits of interest to all the family, relating to windmills, corn milling and local history. It is the only UK museum dedicated to windmills in general, and has exhibits on windmill design, development and operation, as well as opportunities for children to grind their own corn using a hand quern. There is a display of Scouting memorabilia recording the writing of 'Scouting for Boys' which was written by Lord Robert Baden-Powell while staying at the mill. The museum is run entirely by volunteers, and in order to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy visiting, the trustees try to maintain free entry. Funding is almost entirely by voluntary donations.
