In the Bradville area of north Milton Keynes. Heading north on Grafton Street V6, take first R

A limestone tower windmill built in the early 1800s adjacent to the Grand
Union Canal for the supply of flour to the London market. Worked to about 1876.
It was restored in the 1970s-1990s by Milton Keynes Development Corporation, and placed in the ownership of
Milton Keynes Council. Now managed and opened to the public by Milton Keynes Museum.
Recently restored to full working order, producing flour.
