Lindley’s Mill is a hidden gem in the centre of Sutton in Ashfield and is one of only two stone built windmills remaining in Nottinghamshire (the other being at Warsop). The mill was built in the 1820s and is a Grade 2 listed building. Built by James Lindley to replace a post mill that was damaged by a gale in 1818 the mill fell into disuse in the early 1900s. All that remains is the stone tower which was restored in 2014. A new roof and weather proofing with new windows were installed and a small heritage centre created.
The site is open for visits where a film detailing the history of the mill can be viewed, with many interesting artefacts on display, bringing the story of the mill to life. Visits to the centre are arranged through Sutton Heritage Society, telephone: 01623 623508, website: http://www.suttonheritage.org.uk
