Ellis Mill

We would welcome any volunteers who would like to learn about the windmill and milling history. Then share its essential contribution to the city's history with visitors.

Located in uphill Lincoln, this 1798 grade II listed windmill is opening this year for the Heritage Weekends and possibly the first Saturday of each month from March to September.

Although no longer in full operation, volunteers will welcome and show visitors around the ground floor and outside the Mill and share stories about the working life of the millers who were still making flour there until recent years.

There are also souvenirs available for you to sell to interested customers.

We will give full induction and training on the history of Mill and for your role as a guide. There will be support provided throughout your time as a volunteer.
