Welcome to Little Marton Windmill

Little Marton Windmill is a well known landmark.

It is familiar to millions of travellers due to its location on the principal main road into Blackpool, just by the end of the M55 motorway.

Relatively few however know the story of the mill, or its place in local history.

Recently, with co-operation between Blackpool Council and The Friends of Little Marton Windmill, it has become possible to view the interior of the mill, and the remaining original machinery, whilst enjoying a unique exhibition depicting the story of windmills across the Fylde.

The story is told of how the mill was saved into preservation as a memorial to popular local author Allen Clarke, was adopted by the town council, and eventually opened to the public by the Friends group.

Day Trips & School Tours

The Friends of little Marton Windmill are happy to open the mill for private visits, by prior arrangement. Our heritage displays are normally in place throughout the spring and until late autumn. Light refreshments can be arranged if desired.
If you wish to organise such a visit, please contact us, initially through this website, and we will come back to you.

In view of the ongoing problems caused by the COVID 19, it has been decided that Little Marton Windmill will not open to visitors during 2020.

This decision has been taken reluctantly, but is believed to be in the best interests of both potential visitors and volunteer guides. Adequate social distancing would be impossible in the limited confines of the building.

This action is believed to be in line with the majority of visitor hosting windmills in the UK.

It is anticipated that the mill will be able to open again in the Spring of 2021.

                                    Our social meetings have also been abandoned.                        

Please watch this website and our Facebook page for news.
