The Education Resources section provides schools with materials to use in the classroom and on site at the Windmill.   It has been part-funded by the Pewsey Area Board through the local grant scheme.

There are many ways in which Wilton Windmill can be used, including science, art, history, food and nutrition.

The Education Resources should be used in conjunction with a visit to the Windmill.  The visit includes a guide who roleplays George Barnes, a 19th century miller.

Take a look at the resources listed below – to book a visit please click here.   Please note that school visits are chargeable at our group rates which can be found here.
