Welcome to the Hardley Windmill Trust website

As from 2022 the mooring fees at Hardley Windmill will change.

For those who are members of the Friends of Hardley Windmill (see website: – £6.00 per person; £10.00 for two people) the overnight mooring fee will remain at £5.00.

For all other boats the mooring fee will increase to £10.00 overnight.

Hardley Mill is maintained as the most active mill, fully restored and is able to pump water, on the Norfolk Broads. The turning sails attract visitors from far and wide.

The video clips were taken by Camoflage IMG who were using Hardley Windmill and Hickling Broad to create a video for Norwich City FC. They kindly edited some of the clips to put on our website.

Mill open to Visitors

The mill is open on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from April to September. Admission to the visitor centre is free. Admission to the mill is £3.00 per adult and children 16 years and under £1. The restored mill and visitor centre are accessible to visitors via the Wherryman’s Way footpath or the river side moorings. See the contact us page for further details.

The ‘Friends of Hardley Mill’ (FoHW) support the Trust and commit to the objectives:

  1. To raise funds for the restoration of the Hardley Mill to full working order and to conserve and maintain it for the public benefit.
  2. To develop this Grade II listed Heritage building as an educational facility and visitor centre for all people, particularly the young.
  3. To maintain the landscape, fences, boundary features, walls and structures or apparatus from time to time erected or standing thereon.

There are several events planned in support of the ongoing work at the mill.

Mill opening times

The visitor centre and mill are open as follows:

Saturday, Sunday and Monday April to September 10.00 am to 4.00 pm

During the week, there are frequently members of FoHW working at the mill. They will usually be able to show visitors around, but access may be limited depending on the nature of work being carried out – please don’t be offended if it is not always possible to view the mill.

If the sails are turning – we are open.
