A LABOUR OF LOVE

Ripple Windmill was moved to the current site in around 1810 from Hawkinge, Folkstone and continued to produce flour and animal feed until the late 1940s.

It became derelict and was sold to Rediffusion who stripped most of the machinery from the mill, removed the cap and sails and used it as a TV mast due to the Mill's high position.

It became redundant and we purchased the mill in 1987 with the sole intention of restoring it back to working order. Finally, in 1997 the sails turned for the first time in over 50 years.
