A spokesperson for the Grade II * Listed windmill said: "There will be lots to see and do including the Coventry and Warwickshire Spinners and Weavers demonstrating the ancient craft of spinning and weaving with sheep’s wool along with a plant stall."

"John, David and Yvonne will tell you all about the history of this Warwickshire tower mill that was built in 1826, on the site of a post mill (wooden mill).”

"The owner has records of the Mill from the 1700s and believes there was a Mill on this site since the 10th Century."
