About this spot
This iconic Sussex landmark, perched on Halnaker Hill and visible from a wide surrounding area, is well worth the climb to capture and photograph. The wildflower-rich chalk grassland at the hilltop is a great spot to get away from it all and enjoy fine views of the coast across a patchwork of woods and farmland.

The windmill has been recently restored with a new tile-hung façade and extensive repairs to the cap and balcony. The sails (known locally as sweeps) have also been restored and rehung. A new galvanised steel fence has been installed around the perimeter of the windmill. The windmill interior is closed to the public.
