Wrawby Postmill, Wrawby, Lincolnshire

Wrawby Postmill is a late 18th century windmill near Brigg, built to serve the Elsham Hall estate.

Originally, it bore four common sails, but through most of its working life had the popular combination of power with flexibility from two common and two spring sails. It became disused and derelict during the Second World War.

Under the veil of demolition, it was acquired in the mid 1960s by the Wrawby Windmill Preservation Society. Further restoration saw a return to the mixed sail types in 2008, with funding support from the SPAB Mill Repairs Fund and donations by local residents.

It is the last post mill in the north of England, and is open to the public on Bank Holiday Mondays from Easter to August, and the last Sundays in June and July with milling for demonstration purposes only.

There is a small museum of milling tools and a shop with souvenirs and refreshments. Group visits are welcome.
